The UK’s first food waste supermarket opens

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.
