Welcome to the official website of The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham!
The Real Junk Food Project is a concept that started in Leeds in 2013. The network now has over 130 projects and 60 PAYF cafés across the U.K. and worldwide. TRJFP Brum has been operating for over 2 years now – intercepting over 6 tonnes of waste food and serving over 2,000 meals every month. The project aims to intercept food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, restaurants and other sources; turn it into healthy, nutritious meals for all on a “Pay-As-You-Feel” basis.
We have regular cafés every Wednesday & Friday at Ladywood Health and Community Centre. On Wednesdays we offer a lunch service 12-2:30 and dinner 6 – 7:30pm. Fridays lunch is 12-2pm and we also offer an after school tea session 3:30-5pm.
We also have a lunchtime café every Monday at Kings Heath Community Centre from 12-2pm or you can find us at ORT Cafe, Balsall Heath, 12-4pm on the 3rd Saturday of every month.
As if that wasn’t enough – you’ll see us ‘popping-up’ at many different events around Birmingham, check our calendar for exact dates and locations!
We’re also available for catering! Get in touch via the contact page for more info.
