The Real Junk Food Project Coventry is a "Pay As You Feel" Café where you can pay with cash if you are able to do so or by donating time and/or skills – for example helping to tidy up when we close. Local residents can come and enjoy a freshly prepared meal using quality surplus food rescued from local shops and supermarkets. Residents can also learn about how they can reduce food waste at home and benefit from top tips on creating tasty meals from leftovers.
The Café is open to everyone. We want our Café to be a safe and accessible place for people to come and enjoy good food and good company without the worry of whether they can afford it.
The Café is run by a great team of volunteers. We depend on them to collect surplus food from local supermarkets, to prepare and serve the food and to clean up too! We hope the Café becomes an important place in the community where people can come together and have a good time.
