The Felix Project
We are pleased to be part of the Schools Programme for the Felix Project.
More than 10 million tonnes of food is wasted in the UK every year whilst food poverty is a growing problem and parents struggle to put food on the table. The Felix Project will provide a free weekly delivery of surplus food to our school every Thursday for distribution to our families.
Some of the food will be near to or past its 'best before' date. 'Best before' dates are about quality, not safety. When the date is passed it does not mean that the food will be harmful, but it might begin to lose its flavour and texture. It is perfectly safe to eat.

The Felix Project has begun producing recipe cards inspired by the fruits and vegetables they supply. We hope you and your children will have fun making some of the meals. Please let us have your feedback or email the enquiry line with photographs of any meals you make using the recipes.
Please note - from week commencing Monday 19 April 2021, school will no longer be able to provide carrier bags or take orders for Felix bags. Parents/carers will be required to provide their own carrier bag, clearly marked with their child's name and class, and place this in a box in the school's reception area by Tuesday each week. If a bag is not received by that day, we will not be able to provide food. Collection day will continue to be Wednesdays between 2:20-2:40pm.
Bags of Hope
We will no longer be taking delivery of these bags but we are grateful to the charity Jedidiah for the support they have given our families during the lockdown period.
