For those not in the know, The Felix Project is an organisation that collects surplus food and delivers to charities tackling food poverty. (this is where we come in…)

The organisation was set up by Justin Byam Shaw to commemorate his late son Felix, after his untimely passing in 2014. Felix was known for his compassion and his parent’s wished to create something he would be proud of to continue his legacy, and so, The Felix Project was born.
