1.5 million adults in London struggle to afford to eat every day, 400,000 children are at risk of missing the next meal. Meanwhile, the UK food industry generates almost 2 million tonnes of good, edible surplus food each year.
The Felix Project is a London-based food redistribution waste charity set up in 2016 to tackle both issues. They collect good quality food from suppliers, check it’s fresh, and then deliver it to over 400 front-line charities, primary schools and holiday programmes in London.
This year, LondonEnergy’ employees will be able to volunteer one day a year, paid by the company, redistributing food that would be otherwise wasted with the Felix Project. Will Savage, Corporate Partnerships Manager said “The Felix Project is delighted to be partnering with LondonEnergy to continue the fight against food waste and food poverty.
As we move further into 2021 we have several new projects on the horizon, such as the opening of our new London depot and the expansion of our general operation, so LondonEnergy’s support will be more valuable than ever. We look forward to welcoming as many employees in a depot as possible once restrictions ease and look forward to showing, first-hand, the work of The Felix Project.
Thanks so much to all the volunteers and we look forward to working together throughout 2021 and beyond.”
