The Wholesale Market welcomed a regular visitor yesterday. Simon Edge is a co-director of The Real Junk Food Project CIC.
The Real Junk Food Project is a collaborative effort to bring about radical change in our food system. It’s a pretty simple idea with huge impact. Levels of global food waste are a disaster for our planet and the people that live on it. 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 to #FeedBelliesNotBins.
The Market supports the Real Junk Food Project in anyway it can.
