As part of its ongoing commitment to community outreach, Bestway Wholesale donated over 2941kg of UHT potato plant-based milk – the equivalent to over 7,000 meals – to the Felix Project in 2022, a charity that uses surplus food to help people in poverty and need, living in London.

The Felix Project is London’s largest food redistribution charity; it rescues food that would otherwise have gone to waste and distributes it to around 1,000 community organisations and schools throughout London. They have four depots including Park Royal, close to Bestway Wholesale’s head office.

The meals will help various disadvantaged groups including refugees, the homeless, the elderly, the youth as well as families with children on low incomes, those suffering from addiction and those who are socially isolated.

The UHT potato plant-based milk has been sent to hundreds of charities across London.

Dawood Pervez, Managing Director at Bestway Wholesale said: “We continue to support to this wonderful charity because as we know it will help many other charities across London right in the communities that Bestway serves. Frighteningly, 400,000 children go hungry every day and we need to do everything we can to help make this change.”

Charlotte Hill, CEO at the Felix Project, said: “2022 was a tough year for a lot of the organisations we serve. Many saw demand for their services double and all of them are asking for more food. We hear time and time again how food from The Felix Project is a lifeline and many charities would not be able to do what they do without our help. In turn we could not do it without our suppliers like Bestway, we are hugely grateful for their support. Bestway’s donation has been brilliant for the charities and communities we support.”

The Felix Project encourages any organisation with surplus food to get in touch and don’t let it go to waste.

Bestway Wholesale donated over 2.69 tonnes of food in 2020 and 70.23 tonnes of food in 2021.
