Cardiff combats real junk food problem

The Real Junk Food Project will arrive in Cardiff to help take a bite out of Britain’s food waste problem.

Cardiff will become the first Welsh city to take part in the project – following in the footsteps of Leeds, Bristol and Manchester.

It aims to feed and unite the local community by cooking meals made from ingredients which would otherwise go to waste.

Waste not, want not! The Real Junk Food Project is also cooking in Germany, Australia and South Africa

The Real Junk Food Project Cardiff will use a pay-what-you-can policy, allowing customers to pay by cash or by lending a hand with the washing up.

Local people have shown an interest in volunteering for the cause.

Director Joshua Quigley said, “So many people seem to be moved by the project and are eager to donate their time.”

The project will open in the Embassy Cafe and Cathays Youth and Community Centre in January 2016.
