The Real Junk Food Project is a global, organic network of pay as you feel cafes. They divert food destined for waste and use it to create delicious and healthy meals.
What do they do?
To learn more about ‘pay as you feel’ and what the Real Junk Food Project aims to do through its cafes, watch our video below.
Why do they do this?
Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted – Sources: Global Food Losses and Food Waste – FAO, 2011
The environmental crisis: The environment’s role in averting future food crisis– UNEP, 2009
Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth –Sources: State of Food Insecurity in the World, FAO, 2015
We believe that this has to stop, and it needs to happen in our lifetime, to ensure the next generation do not suffer from our ignorance.
Board of Trustees
The Real Junk Food Project Charitable Foundation is a new organisation. The board of trustees brings together a range of knowledge and experience that we are confident will allow us to support RJF Projects in their aims, and to develop campaigning and educational materials to reduce food waste.
