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 18 months now – intercepting 30 tonnes of waste food and serving over 18,000 meals. 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 café every Monday at The Haven, Quinton (12-4pm). 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.
