Plans are being put together to open the first café serving free food to the people of Manchester – utilising ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away. The project aim is to open Manchester’s first waste food pay-as-you-feel cafe, to stamp out food waste in the city and provide hot nutritious meals for all.
The Real Junk Food Project intercepts food that would otherwise go to waste from supermarkets, restaurants and a number of other sources, turning the food waste it into healthy and nutritious meals for anyone and everyone. Meals are priced on a pay-as-you-feel donation basis.
As well as stamping out food waste, they also aim to make the food system fairer and more sustainable and help support some of Manchester’s most vulnerable residents.
