JJ Foodservice offers a helping hand to families in Enfield

JJ Foodservice is helping families in Enfield to deal with the cost-of-living crisis by donating more than 200 ‘Helping Hand Packs’ to local charity The Felix Project. 

JJ Foodservice and The Felix Project work together to prepare and distribute the Helping Hand Packs.

The bags, put together by the wholesaler, contain healthier snacks, drinks and toiletries to help families local to JJ Foodservice’s HQ this October half term.

“Enfield is expected to be one of the hardest hit areas impacted by soaring energy bills,” said HR manager for JJ Foodservice Joanna Florczak.

“We are not the biggest business, but we are keen to help, and are very grateful to our suppliers and The Felix Project, who worked with us to donate a total of 207 Helping Hand Packs.”

Each pack contains: Pip Organic Apple Juice, Bare Fruit Organic Apple Chips, Off the Beaten Path Rice & Pea Chips, Enliven Raspberry Shampoo, Enliven Coconut Conditioner, Enliven hand sanitiser and Twining’s English Breakfast Tea.

The Felix Project is a leading redistribution charity in London. The group rescues surplus food from suppliers and then delivers it to over 1,000 community groups, charities and schools across every London borough.

Charlotte Hill, CEO of The Felix Project, said: “This is a wonderful donation, with some fantastic products that will have been hugely welcomed by the recipients. We were thrilled to help deliver the packages and would like to say a big thank you to JJ Foodservice and their partners for this generous contribution at such a crucial time.”
