Fighting Food Waste With The Felix Project
Food waste is a growing problem worldwide. 33% of all food produced is wasted every year. Food poverty is also on the rise, in-which people can’t afford to feed themselves sufficiently. If only a quarter of the waste were saved, 870 million people would not go hungry. In the UK alone, 1.9 million tonnes of avoidable food waste is generated by the food industry each year, and nearly 4 million children live in households that struggle to afford to buy enough fruit, vegetables, fish and other healthy foods.
This month for TAMRU, we’re supporting the Acton based charity thefelixproject.org.
“The Felix Project provides a free door-to-door service to collect surplus food from suppliers, and deliver it to charities. We provide food for nearly 3 million meals per year, and our operation is growing rapidly. From a standing start in 2016, we currently work with around 200 charities and 200 suppliers helping disadvantaged adults and children get access to high quality food.”
We’ve got two DJ’s lined up, an MC, and lawn games in the training area. We’ll be setting plenty of challenging and accessible blocs.
The Riki Ricuras Bread food truck will be stationed outside serving up your choice of chicken/steak/veggie burritos, tacos and salads. Join us for a great night!
