The Felix Project launches it’s first kitchen in East London

The Felix Project, a London based charity whose aim is to make sure no child goes hungry in the capital has launched it’s first kitchen site in London this week. Felix’s Kitchen will use surplus food to create delicious ready meals, changing menus day-by-day according to what comes through the door. The kitchen is based in Tower Hamlets, where 55% of children live in poverty. The kitchen was made possible with the on-going support of The Evening Standard and Independent who, after a tremendous campaign to feed London throughout lockdown, have given a further £1 million pounds to launch the project, via the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund, which is managed by the London Community Foundation. The launch of the kitchen saw endorsement from premier league footballers to celebrity chefs. Hebe spoke to a few of them.
