Project to reduce food waste in Wakefield is helping to feed the hungry

In just two months a Wakefield project, aiming to reduce food waste, has created 75 thousand meals from products that would normally have gone to landfill.

The Real Junk Food Project has prevented tonnes of edible food from being wasted.

It takes surplus stock off supermarkets' hands before sending it to foodbanks and schools or selling it at their 'pay as you feel' shop.

Founder, Adam Smith, says it helps the environment and those who are struggling to make ends meet.
