The Felix Project

020 3034 4350

More than eight million people in the UK struggle to afford to eat every day, while our food industry generates 100,000 tonnes of edible food waste each year. When this food goes to landfill, it is a major contributor to climate change. The Felix Project rescues this food – food that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste. The food is high-quality and includes a high proportion of fresh fruit and vegetables, bakery produce, salads, meat and fish. We collect or receive food from a range of suppliers including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. We sort and then deliver this food to charities that cook meals and prepare food parcels for vulnerable people and to primary schools to distribute to children and their families. This year we will deliver 2,000 tonnes of food to more than 300 London frontline charities, primary schools and holiday programmes. This is enough food to make almost five million meals.
