What is The Felix Project?
The Felix Project is a food redistribution charity. They collect food that would otherwise go to waste, but is perfectly fine to eat, and distribute it to schools and charities across London.
What is the schools programme?
The Felix Project Schools Programme is a programme through which schools across the country can contribute to reducing food waste and all the associated consequences, for example the emissions of CO2 and methane. They work with us to develop awareness and skills around the issue of food waste and take practical action against it. Together, we will be making a difference!
A weekly delivery of food
Marner will receive a delivery of produce from The Felix Project every week that will be made available to be used in after school clubs, cooking lessons and eventually, distributed via our own ‘Market Stall’ in the playground. However, as we are unable to guarantee that the food being delivered is Halal; all food will be checked prior to being used.
Just by using this food and averting it going to landfill, we will be preventing the same amount of environmental damage as a car driving around the globe twice every year!
The Felix Project are always looking for volunteers to help them drive their vans, go out as a co-driver (no need for a driving licence) or sort food at the warehouse and keep it clean and organised. If you are interested, please visit their website and register!
