Real Junk Food Manchester (RJFM) is an innovative social enterprise. The project sources food that would otherwise go to waste, transforms it into beautiful dishes, and serves them to anyone and everyone on a pay-as-you-feel basis. The project tackles food waste and its huge environmental impact, access to enough food and great food for all, and social isolation.
Real Junk Food had existed in Manchester for nearly 2 years, delivering a huge range of pop-up events and collaborations but they had bigger plans. The project used crowdfunding to raise some of the money needed to help open Manchester’s first waste food pay-as-you-feel restaurant. However, they were going to need extra help to get the kitchen kitted out.
