The Felix Project- Volunteer Depot Assistant



Details of the Charity:

Good food for good causes.

Right now, millions of people in the UK regularly experience hunger. Yet tonnes of fresh food are thrown away every day. Inspired by Felix, we set out to change this. No one should have to miss a meal.


In our capital city, thousands of children go to school hungry each morning.
Young mothers skip meals to feed their families. Elderly people are malnourished and those with a mental illness are often ignored.

The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold. We deliver this surplus food to charities so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.
