The UK’s first food waste supermarket has opened in Pudsey, near Leeds.
Food waste campaigners from the Real Junk Food Project have opened « the warehouse », a store on the Grangefield Industrial Estate. Customers are invited to shop for food thrown out by supermarkets and other businesses.
The food is priced on a « pay as you feel » basis and has already helped desperate families struggling to feed their children.
Adam Smith, founder of the Real Junk Food Project, which is behind the food waste supermarket, told The Independent that there are plans to open a warehouse selling surplus produce in every city in the UK.
