Edenred’s people spend an Ideal Day helping food charities

Annual volunteering provides help for London communities

As Covid restrictions lifted in June, Edenred mobilised staff volunteers to provide hands on support to two, London-based, food redistribution charities it partners with, City Harvest and The Felix Project.   

Staff volunteered to help as part of Edenred’s “Ideal Day” initiative, a scheme that invites staff across its global offices to volunteer in communities where Edenred is based. 

London-based staff supported by taking on a Green Scheme route for The Felix Project, collecting surplus food from cafe's, supermarkets and other food suppliers and delivering directly to charities helping the homeless and other vulnerable groups in Central London.

“Although we’ve supported both charities financially through the lockdowns, staff were thrilled when Covid restrictions relaxed this summer and they could get out into the community and help out in person”, said Andy Philpott, sales and marketing director, who is leading the charity partnership for Edenred.

“As we head into the colder months, we are planning further fundraising events and volunteer days with both charities to help distribute fresh food to the elderly, homeless, families and children, refugees and those with mental health issues.”   

Staff at Edenred’s regional offices are currently raising money for virtual harvest boxes, for City Harvest.  Every £10 donated will deliver food for 40 people.
