The Real Junk Food Project intercepts food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, restaurants and a number of other sources, and turns it into healthy, nutritious meals for anyone and everyone on a pay-as-you-feel donation basis. We have been running pop-up events around the city since October 2014 and have now found a base in Everton to run from until the end of spring 2016.
Our PAYF café is open Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday 11am-4pm @117 Shaw Street, Everton, L6 1HW
Reduce food waste in the city and provide healthy meals for anyone who wants to eat it by having a PAYF café and having a permanent site that can come to.
Spread the Word
Spread the PAYF word and develop a model without an emphasis on financial payment. What can you do to help? Can you cook? Give some of your time? Collect food? Wash windows? Do some DIY?
Educate the public on how to reduce food waste. How much food did you throw away last week? How else could you have used it? Could somebody else have used it?
Scale It Up
Reduce food waste on a national and global scale. There is a huge amount of food waste being created every day and yet every day, people are going hungry. We have the power and a duty to change that.
