The Real Junk Food Project

The Real Junk Food Project is collaborative network of ‘Pay ATRJFPs You Feel’ Cafes taking a stand against food waste. Individually, each cafe is autonomous and often exists as it’s own Community Interest Company. Together, we form a National Food Waste Campaign, combining our efforts and data to show our collective impact across the country.

The project first came to life in 2013. Yorkshire chef, Adam Smith, became preoccupied with the growing problem of food waste after spending a year working on farms in Australia. On return to Leeds, he set up the initiative – gaining immediate interest and respect. With a successful launch of the café, media led the project to quickly gain attention both nationally and globally.The volunteers in each cafe, go out and gather unwanted food from shops and restaurants, and then whip up meals from what they’ve collected. TRJFP aims to intercept food before it reaches bins, and therefore divert it from landfill. Due to the nature of this practice, the cafes menu’s changes daily depending on the food gathered.

‘The Real Junk Food Project is a collaborative effort between catering professionals and activists to bring about a radical change in our food system. Our first step to achieve this challenging task is to intercept perfectly edible food that would otherwise not make it to plate and serve it as meals in the café or distribute it through our food boutique. As well as the positive environmental impacts of reducing edible food waste the project also has clear social benefits through operating a strictly Pay-as-you-feel (PAYF) policy.’
