With your support, we hope to raise enough money to redistribute 2.25 million meals this Christmas.
The Felix Project is London's leading food redistribution charity. We rescue surplus food and deliver it, free of charge, direct to local charities and schools serving people in need. If Felix did not rescue this food, it would be thrown away and wasted.
The Felix Project was founded in 2016 in memory of Felix Byam Shaw, by his father, entrepreneur Justin Byam Shaw. Our vision is a London where no one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.
With London facing its worst food crisis in decades, we need to come together to support the vulnerable. No-one should have to face the tougher winter months worrying about where their next meal will come from.
In London alone, more than 2 million meals are needed to fill the hunger gap caused by COVID. This winter The Felix Project is on a mission to deliver enough surplus food to plug the hunger gap caused by COVID and help Londoners who are struggling.
Over the Christmas period alone, 2 million turkeys, 5 million Christmas puddings, and 74 million mince pies are thrown away, causing almost 270,000 tons of food waste. We simply cannot allow good food to go to waste whilst London’s children and families, elderly, homeless, and key workers go hungry. After one of the most difficult years on record, we must pull together to help our fellow Londoners.
Many new beneficiaries of our food did not need our help before the pandemic. Zoe Green, mother to four, said: “We’d never known food poverty until the coronavirus hit. When we got the first donation from The Felix Project, I was crying as I unpacked all the fresh food”.
1.5 million adults in London struggle to afford to eat every day, 400,000 children are at risk of missing the next meal. This number is rapidly rising as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
This year, we will deliver enough food for more than 20 million meals.
You can make a life-changing difference today. Please donate to ensure no Londoner goes hungry this Christmas.
