Servo Group signs corporate partnership with leading food distribution charity

Servo Group has forged a year long corporate partnership to support a food redistribution charity which has distributed the equivalent of 32 million meals.

The London-based multi-service provider is planning a series of events to back The Felix Project, including volunteering stints from its staff including Divisional Director, Andy Haynes.

The Felix Project is London’s largest food rescue charity, In 2023 it supported over 1,119 community organisations, including 170 schools across every borough of London.

The charity was launched in 2014, in memory of the founders’ 14-year old son who died suddenly of meningitis. It rescues food from suppliers across London, including supermarkets and restaurants which would otherwise go to waste, and distributes it to front-line organisations and schools, with more than half reaching the top fifth most deprived areas of London. The Felix Project has seen a huge increase in demand for its services during the cost-of-living crisis, with 89 per cent of the community organisations it supports revealing they are worried about meeting increased demands from beneficiaries in the coming year.

Servo Group, which provides security services, CCTV and cleaning to clients around the UK, supports a diverse range of causes but with a recent surge in its client base in the capital, it was keen to find a charity partner where its support would make an impact.

Jack Hill, Commercial Manager at Servo Group said: “At Servo, we are always keen to identify causes that align with our own values, and that make a direct, substantial impact in the communities within which we work, and The Felix Project definitely fits that bill. We’re impressed by the magnitude of its work in such a short space of time, and we’re looking forward to contributing to that over the next 12 months through support, events and staff volunteering hours.”

Will Savage, Head of Corporate Partnerships at The Felix Project said: “With 40 per cent of London’s children having experienced food insecurity in the past month, demand from our services is huge. Every single organisation we give food to is desperate for more and we have over 630 organisations on our waiting list. We cannot start helping them until we get a lot more support. We rely on corporate sponsors like Servo Group to provide the help we need to increase our capacity and be there to try and alleviate some of the struggles that up to 1 in 4 working London parents are currently facing.”

Over the past two years, Servo Group has supported more than 20 community organisations and grassroots sports teams, including homelessness charities, food banks and anti-poverty groups.
