The Cause

The Fayre of St James's auction is in aid of the Felix Project, helping it to tackle the twin problems of food waste and food poverty.

Each year the UK food industry throws away the equivalent of 650m meals, which could have been eaten by people in need. 2 million people in the UK cannot afford to eat regularly and 70,000 London children go to school hungry each day. 

The Felix Project collects surplus food from 200 supermarkets, wholesalers and manufacturers and delivers it to over 200 front line charities and 40 primary schools in London each week.
