MAGDA BOZEK 37, Is a mother of two and part time Administrator at Southgate College. She struggles to make ends meet and has claimed Universal Credit since her husband died suddenly from lung caner 5 months ago.
We are in a very hard situation. When my husband died, my life was turned upside down. I was alone but had to look after my 11 year old son David and my 6 year old daughter Ola. I work so I am lucky but life is expensive.
“Felix is a Huge Help and now that we are in isolation – so important – We leave the house once a week to collect our Parcel so it’s the best time of the week.”
DOMESTIC ABUSE SURVIVOR JUSTINE 38, Is a mother of 4 who escaped an abusive relationship and lives in temporary housing, claiming universal credit.
“I first heard about the Felix Project through my six year old son’s school and have been picking up weekly packages since the end of last year.”
“At the moment we are in isolation and things are tough, but Felix is a lifeline. I have used food banks in the past but they do not provide fresh food.”
“There are luxury items in my Felix boxes that I could never afford, like Innocent Smoothies and Mozzarella cheese. Picking up our box from the school is weekly highlight. I don’t know what we would do without it.”
