Thirteenth Birthday Party Festa
Thirteenth Birthday Party Festa

In March 2016, Armley Junk-tion decided to throw a surprise thirteenth birthday party for Casey, who had never had a birthday party. All the staff and volunteers collaborated together along with Casey's parents to make this a waste-food party to remember!

Pop-up cafes are pretty popular in the network, and this image was taken at TRJFP Newcastle's pop-up in a tearoom in their city centre. Needless to say, tea was the beverage of choice that day. :-)

Captured at TRJFP Stamford, this image demonstrates the communality of eating waste food. It creates friendships by the very nature of sitting down together and creating conversation.

Can I....
Can I....

By the very nature of where TRJFP Hebden Bridge is located, it draws artists in, including their wonderful children who are occasionally bewildered by the concept of being able to pay-as-you-feel for as much intercepted waste food as you like!

This image was shot at TRJFP Birmingham, and even though the area in which the cafe is placed is deprived, the children are certainly not deprived of love. :-)

One of the many cafes in the Leeds network, TRJFP Doodle Cafe is in fact an artists' hub, where people can go and purchase and commission art too. It was so lovely to see these babies getting in on the act and 'making art' in their own special way!

Eve**one Welcome
Eve**one Welcome

Shot in 2015 at Armley Junk-tion cafe, at a time when a torrent of displaced people were entering the UK, desperate to escape war and poverty and seek refuge. Unfortunately they were not always welcomed with open arms. The cafe created a sign stating 'Refugees Welcome, Everyone Welcome.' However, someone decided to paint over the 'Everyone Welcome' part to make it look like they were only inviting refugees to the cafe. This then stirred dissent, especially amongst the locals. The cafe repainted it, and again someone painted over it. The cafe realised that in the spirit of inclusivity, it would be best to replace the sign with something that would appeal to all. So they replaced it with a 'Kindness Wall' where people could donate their unwanted items to others. It still exists today.

Love Food Not Waste
Love Food Not Waste

The beauty about a cafe such as the TRJFP Portsmouth, was that they were very good at leaving snapshots of the food waste ethos all over the place! For me, this image captures the very essence of what the project stands for - 'We love food not waste!'

This gorgeous child was a customer at the Saltaire Canteen during the Saltaire Festival 2015. Obviously her delight in sampling delicious waste food tickled her fancy! Or tickled something!

This image was shot at TRJFP All Hallows in Leeds, on November 14th 2015 - the day after the Paris Attacks. In solidarity with the victims from the attack, the cafe wrote a simple, yet very powerful message of support - 'Paris.' (With a depiction of the Eiffel Tower in the middle.)

TRJFP has a huge network of suppliers and an even more fluid logistics service. I followed a couple of the Leeds cafes on a busy Saturday afternoon to Leeds Kirkgate Market where they intercepted a mountain of waste food from vendors who were shutting up shop for the day. Nothing went to waste. :-)

Just look at all those boxes of waste food!

Another landmark in TRJFP movement. In April 2015, they launched the UK's very first 'zero waste' beer. All the ingredients in this brew came from waste food ingredients. In collaboration with Leeds based 'Northern Monk Brewery,' they all celebrated with a pint of 'Wasted.' :-)

Shot at the Saltaire Festival 2015, this little cutie pie was staring at me as I was stealthily manoeuvring around the room. I bobbed down and stared right back at her through a gap in the drinks menu, and bingo, I captured this shot. :-)

This child captured my heart, so I returned the favour by capturing his picture!

This was taken at the launch of TRJFP Plymouth, the venue was held on the site of the founder's home, a quarry for adrenalin junkies no less! It was lovely to see all of Jessica's family getting involved in this, some had travelled from nearby counties, to show their support. And even the rabbits got involved!

You can probably tell by the pumpkin in the background that it was around the time of Halloween. I don't know who looks more impressed by the duck impression at TRJFP Wigan, courtesy of the 'waste' courgette, the lady, or its admirer!

Relax

This gentleman was the very first ever customer at the flagship cafe in Armley Junk-tion, so the very first customer to the project. As seen here, Tony was relaxing with a cuppa as he used to do every day. Less than eight months after our first meeting, he passed away. So I was very thankful that I had met him and chatted with him. Again, another example of 'waste food' bringing people together.

One of the most iconic images shot from the 'Saltaire Canteen' series, these proved best sellers at the exhibition.

Preparing waste food meals can be hard work! So it is important to have a break in between cooking. TRJFP Brighton has a great team of volunteers who all pitch in to make their pop up cafes sustainable and deliver excellent quality waste food meals.

Shot in November 2015, TRJFP Sheffield volunteers delivered a banquet fit for kings, but to a convention of medical students. Appreciative gasps and second and third helpings later, I think they had found new devotees to the movement!

This image was captured on Christmas Day 2015 at the flagship TRJFP cafe, Armley Junk-tion. This for me encapsulates the embodiment of the project, friendship. It is with friendship that the project extends its arms to people, on this very special day of the year, and it is with friendship that they greatly receive it.

TRJFP Horsforth is run by a dedicated team who put their all into serving a veritable feast of fantastic waste food meals. This young lady in particular was keen to express her wonderment at the food, but was a little more suspicious of me! That was until I bribed her with waste food cake. Works a treat, every time. :-)

Energy and mirth! This was shot at TRJFP Leicester, and we snuck away to stage a lentil fight! One of the rare occasions when I can honestly say it was worth wasting (a little) food!
