Welcome to The Real Junk Food Project Leicester

About Us

The Real Junk Food Project is a global, organic network of pay-as-you-feel cafes that was formed in Leeds in 2013 by Adam Smith. Together we divert perfectly edible food destined for waste and use it to create delicious and healthy meals for anyone and everyone. Food Waste and Food Poverty are two major tragedies that we are currently facing. We aim to bridge that gap. We are one of a very few businesses whose aim is to go out of business. This would mean that there are either no food waste to intercept or no hungry tummies to feed, then our job would be considered done!
