McCain in the Community - The Real Junk Food Project

20 May 2020
The Real Junk Food Project feeds bellies, not bins. They’re based in Wakefield and their aim is to reduce food waste and educate about the environmental and social impact of food waste.

They run a social supermarket where customers ‘pay as you feel’ for the food that they have been donated. During Covid-19 they have been supplying food banks, churches and community kitchens with food for community distribution.

In mid April McCain donated c.100 pallets of Gastro Chips to The Real Junk Food Project. These were distributed in Wigan, Barrowford, Birkenhead, Leeds, Wakefield and Todmorden to feed families, schools, hospitals and front line workers.

The Real Junk Food Project will be collecting another donation of approximately 80 pallets of mixed stock from McCain in mid May.
