WHAT DOES PAY-IT-FORWARD MEAN?
Under our previous name of Real Junk Food Manchester, our team operated Manchester’s first waste food pay-as-you-feel restaurant. Pay-as-you-feel brought some amazing environmental and social benefits to our city, but was not financially sustainable. Because of this, we’ve had to adapt our way of working, to make sure that our organisation is financially sustainable, so that we can be here to help our environment and vulnerable people in our city in the long term.
Our catering operation works on a pay-it-forward basis, so what does that mean? Income generated from our corporate and private events catering subsidises our work with local communities. Every week we support local food banks, breakfast clubs, hostels and homelessness support organisations with hot nutritious meals, cold food items, snacks, drinks and toiletries. By ordering catering from Open Kitchen MCR, you are supporting vulnerable people in Greater Manchester.
