URGENT: Request for food aid volunteers over the festive period

The Felix project in London call out for urgent volunteers in support roles for the following key tasks over the Christmas period

The Felix project in London call out for volunteers in support roles for the following key tasks:

  • Van Drivers (C1 Driving Licence required)
  • Co-Driver (to support loading and unloading of food pallets)
  • Warehouse operative (packing and sorting)
  • All the location are based in London
  • Total number of volunteers urgently needed in London 70+

Urgency over the festive period:

  • Volunteers are needed urgently to avoid food being wasted.
  • The busiest period is expected to be 27-31 Dec where there is a drop-off in volunteer numbers.
  • The busiest day will be 27 Dec, when a large volume of donated food would be giving by various suppliers as they open after the festive holiday. This would be the busiest day for all the operation centres.
  • There is an implication if volunteers are not available a lot of food would go out of date and into waste bins. This would be a real shame giving we are all tackling the cost-of-living crisis.
