Food banks benefit from major new charity partnership

Edenred backs Felix Project and City Harvest with donations and volunteering

Thousands more families in the communities around Edenred’s offices will be able to put food on the table thanks to new partnerships agreed between Edenred and two leading food bank charities.

In London, a partnership with the Felix project, a charity which collects food which can’t be sold, will help charities and schools provide more healthy meals for vulnerable people. In addition to cash donations over the next two years, Edenred will co-ordinate employee fundraising and provide volunteers to collect and distribute food across the capital.

A separate donation to City Harvest, will support the charity as it expands to meet community demand in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The last year has shed a light on the extent of food poverty in the UK and the critical difference that nutritious meals play to the life chances of young people,”  said Andy Philpott who is leading the charity partnership for Edenred.

“Having spent the last year delivering Free School Meal vouchers, a key part of the government’s pandemic response, we’re really pleased to have found a way of helping families in the communities where our people live and work.”

The donation to the Felix Project will enable the distribution of equivalent food for 152,500 meals in the next year while the partnership with the City Harvest will rescue 17 tonnes of food and provide some 40,0000 meals to Londoners struggling to put food on the table.
