We REfUSE to be part of a wasteful food system. We need to RE-think. We REscue, REclaim and RE-use, so that good food doesn’t become REfUSE.
REfUSE’s vision is to reveal the true value of things, places and people that are unjustly wasted or overlooked. We collect food that would otherwise go in the bin from retailers around the North East, and use it to make delicious, beautiful food. Based around a ‘Pay As You Feel’ community cafe in Chester-le-Street, we also do private catering, partner with other charities and run a food box delivery scheme.
We are part of an informal network of similar Pay As You Feel cafes and food waste activists around the UK: see full list here.
