During our Help A Hungry Child Appeal, three popular cafe chains supported The Felix Project’s work to help struggling families by adding a donation on selected items throughout December.

Sales of mince pies at Daylesford and Coco di Mama, and sales of some loaves of bread at Paul helped raise a total of £16,434 for The Felix Project.

Jean-Michel Orieux, CEO of Paul, said: “We are very proud to have been working with The Felix Project, for over a year now and it’s wonderful to know that simply by sharing our unsold daily bread, we are making a real difference to peoples’ lives.

"For Christmas 2017 we again asked our customers to help, this time raising £13,280.00 for the charity from bread sales.”

Deniz Safa, Head of Food at Coco di Mama, said: “No child should go to bed hungry. We hope Coco di Mama’s contribution to the Help a Hungry Child Appeal will support the movement in feeding those most vulnerable.

"Positive changes we make today will play a part in the future of the next generation. We look forward to continuing our relationship with The Felix Project and tackling London’s food waste and hunger issues.”
