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 is a not-for-profit social enterprise which collects food that would otherwise go in the bin to make delicious Pay-As-You-Feel meals. Our vision is to reveal the true value of things, places and people that are unjustly wasted or overlooked.

We are the local branch of The Real Junk Food Project, a network of similar food-waste cafes and activists around the UK and the world.

Have a gander around our website, but please don’t leave without saying hello – get in touch and pop along to our next event (listed at the bottom of the page) or our café (coming soon to Chester-le-Street!)
