British supermarkets always have what you want! The consequences of this is over stock and waste. Ever wonder why food is so expensive, that’ll be because they factor in that waste. Then, at the end of the day, food gets thrown away. Across the country The Real Junk Food Project gets that perfectly edible and safe food and cooks it for the community. In Liskeard, they run a pop up restaurant every week at the scout hut and in other pop areas around the south west. We haven’t made to any before as they are on week days. However, the first Sunday of every month, at The Bread and Roses community pub, Ebrington street, Plymouth, they have a pop up restaurant.
The pub is owned and run by the community and it’s very popular with families and we went for the first time.
There were vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options and everything was delicious.
You pay as you feel and give any donation you want.
I had curry, sag aloo gobi, chicken dansa and carrot pakoras. It was utterly delicious, homemade and healthy. It was wonderful.
Here’s our lunches and drinks.
We are everything and loved it.
Dessert was heavenly. Raw vegan cappuccino cheesecake, fruit tarts, chocolate tart, bread and butter pudding and strawberries.
The vegan cheesecake had a coconut cream topped with cocoa and nuts. The base was made from energy bars probably on a short expiry date. Nothing wasted here.
Look at these these little fruit tarts.
Here’s our desserts. Weren’t we spoilt?
Strawberries are wonderful at any time.
Well done to the Real Junk Food project for everything they do. Thanks to The Bread and Roses for hosting the event. There was a lovely family and community atmosphere and you can pay what ever you like. Look out for the Real Junk Food Project in your area, it saves waste, creates a real community buzz and feeds bellies, not bins!
