The Real Junk Food Project

 

The Real Junk Food Project Supporting FoodAWARE CICIn the middle of March, The Real Junk Food Project redistribution programme delivered 5 pallets (2.5 tonnes) to us at Food Aware CIC in Rotherham.

Thank you WRAP and FareShare for helping to make this possible with their continued support.

The Real Junk Food Project is a collaborative effort between catering professionals and activists to bring about a radical change in our food system.

It is estimated that 1.3 billion tons of food are wasted globally each year, this amounts to nearly 40% of global production, this occurs for a multitude of reasons that vary between regions.

In the U.K studies have shown that we waste over 15 million tons of edible food annually due to stringent and confusing food safety legislation. We argue that these laws need to be revised and people need to relearn the common-sense practices that were used until and during the Second World War.
