As a 'Real Junk Food Project' we intercept edible food and make it available to the community through our cafes and food outlets and share our surplus with other organisations. We are a not for profit organisation that is dedicated to helping our community and the environment. We collect food from businesses and cook a healthy meal for anyone to enjoy at our cafes on a 'Pay As You Feel' basis. In addition, we also make our surplus available through our 'Outlets' (like a mini shop!) and by sharing it with other not for profits across the borough.
To do this we really need our van. Unfortunately, our van failed its MOT and it is not feasible or cost effective to repair it so we need to purchase a new one.
Can you help?
We have intercepted 200,000 tonnes of food per year since we opened in 2015, that's a lot of food! And between us, and the organisations we share with, we fill 125,000 bellies per year.
With your help, we can continue to do this.
