1.5 million adults in London struggle to afford to eat every day, while 400,000 children are at risk of missing the next meal. Meanwhile, the food industry generates almost 2 million tonnes of good, edible surplus food each year. The Felix Project is a London charity set up to tackle both issues.
The charity receives food from over 539 suppliers, they sort and then deliver this food to almost 1000 charities, primary schools and holiday programmes. Food that would have gone to waste is reaching vulnerable people, homeless, people with mental health or those who cannot afford to buy regular, healthy food.
