On Friday 24 November, several London FA staff members headed over to Tower Hamlets to volunteer with The Felix Project.
The Felix Project is London’s largest redistribution charity, they rescue food that would otherwise have gone to waste and give it to around 1,000 community organisations and schools every week, who support those living in food insecurity. Their work is vital to keep Londoners fed, especially since their recent survey found 1 in 4 working London parents struggle to afford to feed their families.
The team, decked in hairnets and aprons instead of tracksuits and football boots, spent the morning at The Felix Project warehouse, supporting in packaging meals for the most vulnerable in London. The team finished the day having boxed up nearly 3,000 meals, which will be distributed to those who need it most in our community.
