"Having just retired, I have been looking for a good cause to become a volunteer with, and the Felix Project is a great one, as I have now seen first-hand. I wanted the charity to be local and one that would really help people. There is so much food wasted every day when there are people all around us who are hungry. Collecting surplus food donated by supermarkets and delivering it direct to other charities, who then use this food to make meals, is such a simple but brilliant idea. I am very pleased to be involved with The Felix Project and am looking forward to seeing it grow in the months ahead."
"I am very happy to volunteer with the Felix Project for two main reasons. Firstly, I believe it is criminal the amount of food stuff that is scrapped when it could help very many needy people, and is exactly this waste that the Felix Project is aiming to put to good use. Secondly, I am a retired person with too much spare time on my hands and this volunteering opportunity gives me something useful to do, as well as the chance to meet new people."
"I spent a lovely day out with Anne out in the van, we delivered to 3 different charities, all of who do wonderful things to support their community. I met some wonderful people and went home that evening feeling inspired. I'm hoping to be able to help more over the summer when I'm off work."
"As I retired recently I started helping out on the Felix Project in West London. A worthy cause that came from a sad event. I only work half a day a week and am involved in picking up surplus food from supermarkets and distributing it to projects in London. Mainly local charities who turn that food, that would have gone in the bin, into nutritious meals for homeless and disadvantaged persons. I love the work and the people are fun and I enjoy spending a morning or afternoon giving something back to the community. "
"The main reason why I have volunteered for The Felix Project is to give support to local charities that in-turn support those less fortunate in our local communities. Volunteering has also enabled me to obtain a good understanding of what happens to unwanted food from wholesalers and retailers in an urban environment. I would like to think that the support that I have given, big or small, has benefited someone somewhere."
