The Real Junk Food Project Pop-Up at The Hive

The Real Junk Food Project saves waste food from landfill by redistributing it around the city, through food bags and pop-up cafes, and is set to start a monthly community pop-up café at The Hive – its first in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Book now for your sitting!

The cafe will operate on a pay-as-you-feel basis, with money, time or skills welcomed in exchange for a good feed

With the motto #feedbelliesnotbins, the Real Junk Food Project has developed a cult following amongst people mindful of sustainability and wastefulness in the food chain.

In this new partnership, The Real Junk Food Project will take-over The Hive Café & Bakery for a monthly pop-up community café, offering home-cooked breakfasts and lunches that makes the most out of good quality donated food that otherwise would have gone to landfill.

The Real Junk Food Café takeover will form part of The Hive’s Saturday Sessions, in which the building, gallery and public spaces open on a Saturday for tours and events. October’s takeover coincides with the opening of a new exhibition Vital Beauty, which explores the re-imagining of six buildings belonging to the Ruskin Mill Trust, of which The Hive is one.

Breakfast and lunch will be served in sittings:

Breakfast: 9:30, 10:15, 11:00

Lunch: 12:00, 12:45, 13:30

The Real Junk Food Café take-over takes place on 10th October, 14th November and 12th December 2020. Pre-booking required via their website.
