The Felix Project warehouse in Poplar, East London, delivers good food to local charities to help East Londoners facing food poverty.

We rely on volunteers 6 days a week to sort and manage donated food, deliver food directly in vans, and complete administrative tasks.

Make a real, immediate difference to food waste and food poverty in your local area. Become a volunteer today.

How to become a volunteer?

The first step is receiving all the necessary information.

You can either

  • attend an online info session with one of our volunteer managers to learn more and ask any questions you might have
  • come in for an in person info session and a taster shift to see if you enjoy it
  • get an email pack with all the info and training you need

How would you like to proceed?

Book your online info session to get started

Our online info sessions are designed to tell you more about volunteering and The Felix Project. They are the first step to becoming a Felix volunteer.

Sessions last 20 minutes and are online video calls so you can attend from the comfort of your own home.

Once you register, you should receive an email with a link to your session within an hour. If you don't receive it, please check your spam folder or contact our volunteer team directly at: [email protected]

What I didn't know was how much food surplus was generated by the food industry. It amazes me the quality of the food that The Felix Project rescues for people in need.
