We’re very proud to say that we are now regularly hosting The Real Junk Food Project North Cornwall!
This is a fabulous project, aiming to reduce food waste and feed the community on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis. We will be hosting meals on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month, from 6pm until the food runs out, open to everyone in the community (and visitors too!) with the added bonus of some great entertainment. From 27th October, the Real Junk Food meals will be accompanied by a local singer/songwriter showcase!
Whether you’re local or just visiting, want a meal or just to see some great performances, and whatever your budget, The Real Junk Food Project has something for everyone. We hope to see you all there!
From The Real Junk Food Project North Cornwall:
What we do:
The Real Junk Food Project is a social enterprise which intercepts edible food that would otherwise go to waste – in landfill, anaerobic digestion or as animal feed – and turns it into ‘Pay As You Feel’ meals for the community.
The estimated annual food waste in the UK is 10 million tonnes – that’s around £17 billion worth in a year, associated with 20 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions. About 60% of this is avoidable waste.
The Real Junk Food Project aims to reduce food waste, educate communities and provide good quality, healthy and accessible meals for all.
Pay as you feel:
The ‘pay as you feel’ concept is a core part of The Real Junk Food Project – making sure that meals are available to all who want them. And payment doesn’t have to be in money! If you have time or skills that you’d like to donate, or even if you just fancy giving us a hand with the clean up, it’s all appreciated and keeps the project thriving.
