Bestway gives 80 tonnes of flour to food poverty charity

Self raising flour

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 uses surplus food to help people in poverty and need. The charity is based in London, with a warehouse close to Bestway Wholesale’s head office.

The flour has been sent to hundreds of charities across the city including Freedom’s Ark, a community church in Tottenham operating a food hub in response to the Covid-19 pandemic; Newham Muslim Safety Forum, which distributes free food parcels in the local community; and Hope for Humanity, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the UK and internationally.

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 children go hungry and we need to do everything we can to help make this change.”

Richard Smith, Supply Manager at The Felix Project added: “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.”
