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. If you’d like more information about projects outside of Birmingham, their website is here.
TRJFP Brum has been operating since 2014 – 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; turning it into healthy, nutritious meals for all on a “Pay-As-You-Feel” basis.
We have regular cafés all over the city, Pay As You Feel boutiques, a Pay As You Feel Sharehouse and we run a Pay As You Feel Freegan Box scheme, and 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!
