The Real Junk Food Project Launch in Dewsbury

The Real Junk Food Project Launch in Dewsbury


The Real Junk Food Project is an idea whose time has definitely come. Determined to put an end to the waste of discarded food from supermarkets and other retail outlets the Real Junk Food Project aims to "Fill Bellies Not Bins".


Launched in Leeds by celebrity chef Adam Smith the Dewsbury project was the brainchild of social entrepreneur, Paul Burr and is hosted by the new Sensory World Play Centre in Old Westgate, Dewsbury.

The launch event on Thursday, 11th June attracted more than 100 people from interested organisations and served more than 60 meals made in the Sensory World kitchen from food donated by the Leeds branch of the project.

The Dewsbury project is running on the Pay As You Feel basis meaning that meals are available to everyone. Those unable to pay don't have to and those who can pay can pay as much or even more than they feel the meal is worth. This enables people to contribute to the coffers while also playing an active part.

All funds collected by Pay As You Feel go to help fund the further development of the Dewsbury project.

Those unable to pay may also choose to volunteer their time or skills either to the Real Junk Food project or to other voluntary projects as a way of paying back for what they have received.

We need more volunteers to help develop the project and if you are interested then call Paul Burr on 07752 410464
