The Real Junk Food Project Central is a Community Interest Company established in August 2017. We intercept edible food destined for waste from supermarkets, restaurants and shops, and make it available for human consumption through our network of local, community cafes and food markets. Everything we do is always Pay As You Feel. You are welcome to pay for your food in cash, time, skills or imagination! We operate on a bottom-up philosophy, where local cafes and food boutiques are run by representatives of their community.
