Food redistribution charity the Felix Project is urgently looking for new suppliers to donate surplus food and help provide up to three million more meals to feed hungry Londoners.

It follows the charity receiving financial support from the Mayor of London to upscale its weekend work and deliver food to community organisations throughout Saturday and maybe Sunday.

However to meet the additional deliveries, an extra 50 tonnes of food a week will be needed. The Felix Project is calling on farmers, food manufacturers and caterers to donate additional surplus food so they can meet the demand.

Shane Dorsett, director of operations explains: “We are hoping, in due course, we will be able take around 100 organisations off the list, but to do so we urgently need more support and to get new suppliers on board. In 2022 The Felix Project rescued more than 12,000 tonnes of food, but that was only enough to supply those already signed up – to cut the waiting list and deliver on Saturday we need more food coming in throughout the week. It’s vital all those in the food industry know we are here, can take their surplus food and redistribute it to those in desperate need.”

The charity currently works with a wide variety of suppliers including farms, manufacturers, wholesalers, supermarkets, restaurants and caterers. Thanks to a donation from HM the King, The Felix Project has been able to increase its freezer capacity and can receive a wide variety of goods which can be frozen and then distributed at a later date. There is also a kitchen where over 3,500 cooked meals are produced and given out every day – meaning the charity can accept surplus food from caterers and restaurants.
