Edenred volunteers at The Felix Project

uploaded on 13 December 2023

This month colleagues joined forces to volunteer at The Felix Project kitchen in Poplar. Together they donned their aprons and helped to create just under 1000 nutritious and delicious meals from surplus food which otherwise may have gone to landfill. The meals were then distributed to charities and foodbanks in need across London.

The Felix Project collects and receives food from over 539 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants, and delis. The food is then sorted and delivered through the warehouse and kitchen to almost 1000 front-line community organisations, primary schools, and holiday programmes in London. That way, food that would have gone to waste is reaching vulnerable people, homeless, people with mental health or those who simply cannot afford to buy regular, healthy food.

Colleagues shared that chopping such a high volume of fresh ingredients, especially the runner beans, was challenging work. As was the packing and cleaning, but at the same time the work was extremely rewarding. It was also great to spend time with new and old colleagues.

A special thank you to all our volunteers for making the day a great success - Kelly Robinson, Joe Bargent, Katrina Borg, Emily Gilder, Gina Nicolaou, Stephen Cleary, Debby Hannaford, and Rachel Mildon.
