The Real Junk Food Project Central



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-focused cafes and food markets. We also offer unique events catering and bespoke training under our TRJFP Academy.

Everything we do is always Pay As You Feel, and welcoming of people from all walks of life. 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.

Pay As You Feel

At TRJFP Central, the food really is Pay As You Feel! We believe that everyone has something to offer, but that doesn't have to mean money. You decide the value and form of your payment; we appreciate everything!

Our customers can pay for their food in time, cash, skills of imagination. Hover over each payment to find out more!
