In celebration of London Food Month, The Felix Project has opened a new community kitchen titled ‘Refettorio Felix’, filled with a fantastic range of Grundig appliances!
Stating it will “provide lunch from Monday to Friday for the homeless and those in socially vulnerable conditions during London Food Month”, the kitchen aims to serve more than 2,000 meals using five tonnes of recovered food.
As the official appliance partner of London Food Month, Grundig has provided a plethora of appliances for the Refettorio – translating into English as ‘refectory’. Such appliances include a limited edition fridge-freezer painted by French graffiti artist, Thierry Noir.
The launch event saw speeches from ‘Food for Soul’ founder, and three Michelin star chef, Massimo Bottura; chairman of The Felix Project, Justin Byam, and the creative director for London Food Month, Tom Parker Bowles.
Commenting on Grundig’s contribution, brand manager for Growth Brands at Beko (Grundig’s parent company), Gino Grossi stated “As part of our Respect Food programme we believe people should not only enjoy good food, but respect it too – which means wasting less.
“We already partner with Food for Soul and The Felix Project as part of our commitment to reducing food waste globally and are pleased to have had the opportunity to support Refettorio Felix as the Official Appliance Partner of London Food Month.”
