We are a global, organic network of Pay As You Feel concepts.
We divert surplus edible food destined for waste and make it accessible for human consumption.
We believe it is a human right to have access to food and the scale and senselessness of food waste has to stop. We believe this needs to happen in our lifetime, to ensure that the next generation do not suffer because of our ignorance.
The Real Junk Food Project is a network of projects, charities and volunteers, steered and advised by our trustees and other experts and activists from a range of fields and industries.
