Are you a charity?
No. We are an independently operated non-profit social enterprise (reg number 9728058). We are part of The Real Junk Food Project network which is headed up by the charitable foundation (reg number 1160107).
Does anyone get paid?
No. We are run by volunteers.
Where do the donations go?
The majority of donations go to venue hire for our pop-ups and purchasing equipment to allow us to cater for large numbers of diners. Many community venues don’t have a great deal of equipment so we have had to purchase and source our own.
Below is a split of our expenditure so far:
What are your plans for the next 12 months?
We aim to run at least one pop-up per month in different areas across Sheffield whilst we search for a permanent home. Having our own venue will mean we can start saving food from going to waste every single day instead of just one or two times a month.
Who runs the project?
The project is headed up by founder and Director Jo Hercberg and Directors René Meijer and Liam Garcia.
