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. 



Our Community run ‘Real Junk Food Cafe’  repurposes waste food from local supermarkets creating ‘pay what you can afford’ meals to help tackle food poverty and to use food as a way of bringing different sections of the community together in a non-threatening way and building links between people.


All our teas, and coffees are also fairtrade and organic wherever possible, and we use organic milk.






We are a community led group who have come together through our interest in food and know that it is a universal topic which brings people together. Our different communities want to be part of family orientated activities which are open spaces to meet, work and celebrate together and food is the perfect means to facilitate this.

Volunteers needed to help run the cafe- please get in touch with if you want to find out more.
