Today Felix has 35 staff, 2,067 volunteers, three large depots, a central London operation and a fleet of 31 vans who were delivering almost 40 tonnes of nutritious rescued food per week before Covid-19. Their schools programme in the most deprived areas of London provides children and their families with fresh fruit and vegetables to take home. The Felix Project give a sense of community to thousands of Londoners with regular daily and weekly food deliveries, including the elderly, the homeless and refugees.
Since the start of the pandemic they have fed more people than ever before. The charity has nearly quadrupled their daily food output with around 125,000 meals now being redistributed to London’s most vulnerable communities via schools, emergency food hubs, food banks, social kitchens and other community organisations across the capital. This made a total of 20.1 million meals delivered throughout 2020, with a target of 38 million in 2021.
One of the first charities Felix started delivering to is St Laurence’s Larder, which helps 3,000 vulnerable people a year. Its founder, Stephen Chamberlain, reflected on the service that Felix provides: 'For people down on their luck and at the lowest ebb of their lives, make no mistake, Felix is a godsend.'
