The Real Junk Food Project

The Real Junk Food Project is a collaborative effort to bring about a radical change in our food system. We save perfectly edible food that would otherwise not make it to your plate, and make it available to all on a Pay As You Feel basis. Everything we intercept is processed, quality controlled and distributed through our network of cafes, Sharehouses, Freegan Boxes, schools and community groups.
