Exciting Times Ahead

Poster designed by Thom Novi

Hello there! Welcome to our blog. Over the next few months we have some exciting campaigns coming up. So whilst we wait for our shiny new website to be up and running, this is where you can find all the latest from The Real Junk food Project Brighton.

You may have spotted us dishing up tasty lunches at the One Church, Gloucester Place (Friday, 1-3pm). Or perhaps we’ve had a chat at the Churchill Square Market (Wednesday, 10am – 4pm)? You may have even joined us at one our pop-up events since last Summer…

For those of you still in the dark, the Real Junk Food Project Brighton is all about intercepting food waste from supermarkets, restaurants and other sources, before transforming it into healthy, nutritious meals to serve to the local community, on a 'pay as you feel' basis.

The ‘pay as you feel’ concept encourages people to think about what a plate of food means to them. Where has it come from? How much energy was used to create it? Why was it destined for landfill? Answering these questions will help to raise awareness about the problem of unnecessary food waste and encourage people to try to live more sustainably.

Next Friday will see us launch our Crowd Funder campaign with a special Waste Showcase (see the flyer above for more details)! Over the next few months we will be using this blog to introduce you to the project, our amazing volunteers and other great local organisations working to tackle food waste in Brighton and Beyond.

Until then we would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has come along, helped out and been involved so far! If you would like to be a part of The Real Junk Food Project Brighton… we need you! Chefs, waiting staff, social media helpers, PR gurus, drivers, advertisers, accountants, fundraisers, musicians and even smiley people to come and keep our customers happy. All are welcome. Please come to an event to chat to us or email us at, either way it’ll be lovely to hear from you.
