Welcome to the official website of The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham!
The Real Junk Food Project is a concept that started in the UK in 2013. The network now has over 130 projects and 60 PAYF cafés worldwide. If you’d like more information about projects outside of Birmingham, please visit the national Real Junk Food Project website.
TRJFP Brum 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.
We have regular cafés all over the city, food boutiques, a Sharehouse, and we run a Freegan Box scheme. As if that wasn’t enough – you’ll see us popping-up at many different events around Birmingham; check out the calendar on the left for dates and locations of the next 10 places you can find us. We’re also available for catering: see here for more info.
