Real Junk Food Manchester is a not-for-profit community interest company.

We tackle environmental and social problems through a mix of practical action and campaigning. We intercept food that would otherwise go to waste, and transform it into amazing meals for everyone and anyone, on a pay-as-you-feel basis.


In the short term we aim to reduce as much food waste as possible by feeding bellies not bins. In the long term we aim to campaign and raise awareness to stop food waste from happening, and make our food system more sustainable and fairer for all.
