The Felix Project is a London-based charity that rescues good food that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste. We collect or receive food from suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis. 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 accompany drivers in our lovely green Felix vans. Along with your 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 food you deliver has on people’s lives.

Main responsibilities:
• Accompanying the driver on one of our routes
• Using the SatNav
• Calling charities and suppliers ahead of arrival
• Acting as an ambassador for The Felix Project
• Helping to load and unload the van
• Recording the number of crates per drop off and pick up
• Recording the chiller temperature at every drop off and pick up
• Helping to unload the van at the end of shift and sorting produce

Our shifts are from 8:45 – 12:45pm and 12:30 – 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday. We also have shifts on a Saturday morning. Once you’ve signed up as a volunteer, you can pick the shifts that suit you.
