London charity receives food donation

A London charity has benefited from a sizeable donation of food that would otherwise have gone unused from West Ham United’s postponed Premier League match against Norwich City on Saturday. 

The Felix Project – a food distribution charity which delivers to close to 1,000 front-line charities, primary schools and holiday programmes in the capital – received the donation of perishable items from Delaware North, the food and beverage services operator at London Stadium. 

The postponement of Saturday’s game, due to COVID-19 cases, injuries and other illnesses in Norwich’s squad, meant food that would have been consumed from concourse concessions and in hospitality areas would have been wasted without the donation. 

The Felix Project believes in a vision of London where nobody goes hungry and good food is never wasted. 

It states that 1.5m adults in the capital struggle to afford to eat every day, while 400,000 children are at risk of missing their next meal.
