The Felix Project has just launched a Kitchen in East London, where we will cook delicious, nutritious ready-made meals from the surplus food we rescue. We then deliver these meals to charities, schools and holiday programmes in the area to for families and others in need.

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

Info sessions are conducted online via a Teams video call, so you can attend on your phone, tablet or computer from the comfort of your own home. The session will take just 20 minutes and cover what we do, why we do it and how you can get involved. Once you register, you will 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 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.

Volunteering in our East London kitchen

Next door to our warehouse, you'll find Felix’s Kitchen – where we’ll use the surplus food we rescue to cook healthy ready-made meals for schools and charities in the local community!

Volunteering in our Kitchen is a great way to learn new skills to enhance your CV, or even transition into a career in food! All volunteers will be offered health and food safety training as part of the role, and will receive training certificates upon completion.
