The Real Junk Food Project
The Real Junk food project is an environmental project rescuing surplus food from supermarkets and food businesses. They have the slogan, ‘feed bellies, not bins’
They run cafes where home cooked meal are available from tues – fri:
Tues/Wed – St Lukes Church, Old Shoreham road
Thu – Hollingdean Community Centre, Thompson Rd, Hollingdean
Fri – One Church, Gloucester Place
As their network got better at intercepting food destined for waste, they needed to find new ways to distribute it. Sharehouses don’t usually prepare or cook food, but make it available for people to collect and consume elsewhere.
They also have a food shop at their hub in Bevendean open mon-fri 1-4.30pm where surplus food is available.
They have a concept of ‘Pay as you feel’ that includes everyone regardless of income, and they invite donations of money, volunteering or if you have a skill to offer please go along and get involved.
