The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham has been operating since 2014 – rescuing over 15 tonnes of waste food and serving over 2,000 meals every month. The project intercepts food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, restaurants and other sources; turning it into healthy, nutritious meals for all on a “Pay-As-You-Feel” basis.
They have regular cafés all over the city, food boutiques, a Sharehouse, and we run a Freegan Box scheme. They also pop up at many different events around Birmingham; check out the calendar on the website for dates and locations of the next 10 places you can find us. They’re also available for catering.
If you want to support them, they operate on a pay-as-you-feel basis so you can visit one of their cafes or order a freegan box. Volunteers and donations are also most welcome.
