James May has been delivering food to vulnerable people during pandemic
James May's been spotted out and about with The Felix Project...
We know James May might not want to shout about this, so we’ll do it for him instead.
James May has been volunteering for local London charity, The Felix Project.
May has been out and about driving a van, delivering surplus food to families who are struggling.
The Felix Project collects fresh food which, for several reasons, can’t be sold. It then delivers the food to families in need.
The Coronavirus pandemic has seen many struggling to afford food, or access it.
Last year, the Trussell Trust, Britain’s largest network of food banks, delivered 1.6 million three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis — an 18.8% increase on the previous year.
There are 2,000 food banks across the UK alone — more than there are branches of McDonald's — with the Trussell Trust accounting for about 1,200. A North Paddington food bank in London, which provides food to more than 100 households each week, say donations are currently down 25%.
However, people all over the UK are getting involved to help vulnerable people get through the pandemic. And now James May has joined in as well.
We may be a little biased, but we reckon he's rocking the hi-vis too...
