About The Felix Project
The Felix Project is a dynamic, ambitious charity working to make London a city where no one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.
We rescue high quality, fresh and nutritious food that cannot be sold from nearly 500 suppliers including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. We sort and deliver this food to charities, schools and community projects supporting London’s most vulnerable people.
This year we expect to rescue 13,000 tonnes of food to redistribute to more than 1,000 London frontline charities and primary schools in every borough of London. That’s enough food to make more than 30 million meals.
The Felix Project is growing fast in response to huge demand. Set up in 2016, we now have around 160 staff working alongside 8,500 volunteers. We have four main operating depots spread across London - in Deptford, Enfield, Park Royal and Poplar. We’re committed to ensuring our different teams work hand-in-hand, so our main hot-desking spaces are built into these depots.
Alongside our large-scale, depot-based operations we have green ‘point-to-point' food redistribution projects in central London and Canary Wharf. In Poplar, we operate a commercial Kitchen which uses surplus food to cater for up to 5,000 individual meals per day.

The Felix Project recognises the positive value of diversity and is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce. We understand that certain groups (for example disabled people, women, and people from ethnic minorities) are less likely to apply to roles where they do not meet all of the criteria. For this reason, we actively encourage people to apply if they think they can do the role, even if they do not meet all of the requirements. We are also keen to encourage applications from those with identities that are currently underrepresented within the charity sector.
The Felix Project can only employ applicants who currently have the right to work in the UK.
