About this job
The Felix Project is a London-based charity that rescues good food that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste.

We sort and then deliver this food to charities that cook meals and prepare food parcels for vulnerable people and to primary schools to distribute to children and their families.
We are looking for people to drive our lovely green Felix vans. Along with your co-driver, 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.
