As part of its ongoing commitment to community outreach, Bestway Wholesale has donated over 80 tonnes of self-raising flour to The Felix Project this year.
The Felix Project is based in London with a warehouse at Park Royal close to Bestway Wholesale’s head office. The charity uses surplus food to help people in poverty and need, living in London. Woodland Group’s domestic fleet, Woodland Logistics, supported the donation by delivering the 80 tonnes of flour to London.
The flour has been sent to hundreds of charities across London. Freedom’s Ark, a community church in Tottenham operating a Community Food hub in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, supporting for vulnerable people in the community. Newham Muslim Safety Forum, working in alliance with mosques, organisations and community activists to distribute free food parcels to fight poverty in the local community. Hope for Humanity, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the UK and internationally, who run a food bank service in London.
Dawood Pervez, Managing Director at Bestway Wholesale said, “We chose to donate the flour to this wonderful charity because as we know it will help many other charities across London right in the communities that Bestway serves. Frighteningly, 1.5 million adults and 400,000 go hungry and we need to do everything we can to help make this change.”
Richard Smith, Supply Manager at The Felix Project: “We are so thankful to Bestway for donating flour to our charity and for their partner Woodland Group to support without hesitation. Bestway’s flour arrived during the height of lockdown and has been brilliant for the charities and communities we support. We encourage any organisation with surplus food to get in touch with The Felix Project and don’t let it go to waste.”
