The Felix Project is a London charity working with food suppliers and charities to reduce food waste and food poverty. We collect food from supermarkets, wholesalers and other food suppliers - food that is fresh and nutritious, but cannot be sold for various reasons. We deliver that food free of charge to charities which provide meals, snacks or food parcels for their clients, including the elderly, the homeless, people with mental health issues, refugees and asylum seekers and vulnerable families and children. We simply want to see good food go to good causes.
The Felix Project has two key areas for measuring our impact - the number of meals we provide to London's vulnerable people and the the environmental benefits we can make through rescuing good food.
The Felix Project believes in a vision of London where no-one goes hungry and good food is never wasted. And together, we believe we can win the fight against food waste and hunger in London.
We rescue good, surplus food from the food industry that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste. This is high-quality and nutritious, including a high proportion of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, salads, meat and fish. We collect or receive food from over 539 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis.
We then sort and then deliver this food to almost 1000 front-line charities, primary schools and holiday programmes in London. That way, food that would have gone to waste is reaching vulnerable people, homeless, people with mental health or those who simply cannot afford to buy regular, healthy food.
