Working With Waitrose At Hobs Moat

The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham would like to say a huge THANK YOU to

in Solihull for partnering with us and supporting our Hobs Moat Community Café and Food Boutique, which we launched in May.

Our dedicated volunteers collect items that Waitrose can no longer sell, and deliver them to our Hobs Moat community café. Anything that can’t be used by the kitchen goes to the boutique for
customers to take home, or to our Sharehouse in Winson Green. In this way nothing is wasted as TRJFPBrum’s motto is #feedbelliesnotbins!

Anyone is welcome to eat or shop with us, we just ask for a donation of cash, time, or skills on a Pay-As-You-Feel (PAYF) basis. This makes for a fantastic welcoming environment, breaking down barriers for all members of the Hobs Moat community to attend and get involved.

The Hobs Moat Café and Food Boutique run weekly every Thursday 12pm-2pm at St Mary’s church hall. You can download and print off posters and fliers here:

*No Freegan Boxes 28th April*

Sorry

Hi everyone,

Due to preparations for the upcoming elections, some of Ladywood Health and Community Centre will be out of use for us for a few days – including the hall we use for Freegan Boxes.

We looked into alternative spaces, but there were just too many logistical issues to overcome in time, so we have had to take the decision to temporarily suspend some of our services:

There will be no Freegan Boxes (deliveries or collections from Ladywood/Kings Heath) on Friday 28th April.

The Café will be serving lunch only on:

  • Wed 26th April (Front Hall)
  • Thurs 27 April (Downstairs)
  • Fri 28 April (Front Hall)
  • Wed 3 May (Downstairs)
  • Thurs 4 May (Downstairs)

The Boutique will be run from wherever lunch is being served.

Thank you to all our volunteers for their patience and flexibility, and apologies again; we really don’t like disappointing anyone!
