The Felix Project Warehouse Volunteer
The Felix Project is London's biggest food redistribution charity and the largest end-to-end food redistribution charity in Europe.
Their vision is a London where no one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.
The Felix Project has just launched a new warehouse and its first social kitchen in Poplar, East London to deliver good food to charities, schools, and holiday programmes across Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham and more.
Without volunteers, they can't operate. Join their team to fight hunger and food waste in East London.
You will be responsible for visiting our suppliers to collect high-quality and nutritious food and delivering this food to our charities. This role will give you the opportunity to get out and about in London and see first-hand the impact the charity is having on people’s lives.
