The Felix Project
The Felix Project is a food redistribution charity in London fighting food waste and hunger.
The Felix Project rescue good, surplus food from the food industry that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste.
The project collects or receives food from over 170 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. They then sort and deliver this food to over 350 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.
