The Independent has teamed up with The Felix Project to help those going hungry because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues more and more families are struggling to stock up on food as they lose their jobs or can’t go due to health concerns.
In response to this crisis, community hubs are being setup across Britain to help deliver food to as many of these people as possible. The Independent has joined the cause and partnered with The Felix Project to help deliver produce across London’s boroughs.
The Independent is also asking all food charities across Britain to contact [email protected] to tell them about your project. The Independent will then build a directory of ways that readers can help the hungry in their local area; either through money, volunteering or food donations.
Mark Curtin, CEO of The Felix Project said: “Our role is to pick up large volumes of nutritious surplus food from the commercial sector and deliver it to community hubs to ensure there is enough food for vulnerable people for as long as this health crisis ensues. We will be working all hours doing our bit – and it would be wonderful if (The Independent) readers can get behind us so we can do this job for London.”
