This year for every bottle of Oatnog sold, we committed to donating five meals to vulnerable people across London, through The Felix Project. Thanks to all your support, we’re delighted to be donating 28,347 meals.
Why did we choose to donate to The Felix Project?
Even back in summer last year, it was clear that the winter months would be harder than ever for the most vulnerable in London with the cost of living crisis looming. So for us, it was a unanimous decision to choose The Felix Project as our Oatnog charity.
Right now millions of people in the UK regularly experience hunger. The Felix Project have set out to change this. This incredible charity is fighting hunger and food waste across the capital, by rescuing surplus food from going to landfill and delivering it to over 1,000 charities, schools and local organisations.
The Donation: 28,347 Meals.
We’re truly thankful for your support and so pleased to be donating 28,837 meals through this fantastic organisation. This food will reach Londoners who need it the most: children, families, the elderly, the homeless, domestic abuse survivors, refugees and migrants. Healthy meals reaching the most vulnerable in our society.

Black Lines volunteering at The Felix Project.
After learning about the incredible work that The Felix Project do, we wanted to lend a hand ourselves. This week seven of the Black Lines team headed to the kitchen HQ to volunteer with meal preparation.
Our task? Chopping onions. Plenty of them, plenty of tears too. But the morale in the kitchen was second to none. Speaking to others in our group, there were many regulars who help at The Felix Project every week. The organisation simply can’t exist without the volunteers: 90% of the work is through them.
We loved having the chance to be involved in directly contributing to the distribution of the meals. Every hour of time donated to The Felix Project equates to 250 meals to Londoners. If you’re interested, we’d hugely recommend signing up with your company or as an individual.
So that’s it. Oatnog wrapped for this winter. Thank you again, for all of your support. We’re raring to go for Spring now. Passion Fruit Martini anyone?
