UK opens its first ‘pay-as-you-feel’ #foodwaste grocery store https://t.co/LxImtwwCfE

Since the store’s initial opening on August 29, staff of the Real Junk Food Project have attempted to operate the food waste supermarket (which is awaiting an official name) seven days a week (based on availability) to make food as accessible as possible to the local community. The organizers partner with other local nonprofits working to “rescue” food from the waste stream, stocking the warehouse shelves with all sorts of fresh foods that don’t quite meet the standards of regular grocery stores but are still perfectly suitable for consumption. This is the first such store in the UK, but it echoes similar programs elsewhere in Europe, such as Denmark’s WeFood , which started selling expired food products earlier this year in an effort to reduce food waste and connect people with affordable food.
