Event description
A NEW monthly pop-up restaurant event, featuring The Real Junk Food Project CENTRAL, taking over The Hive Café

About this event

The Real Junk Food Project CENTRAL saves waste food from landfill by redistributing it around the city, through food bags and pop-up cafes, and is set to start a monthly community café pop-up at The Hive - its first in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter.

The Jewellery Quarter Community Café at The Hive operates on a pay-as-you-feel basis, with money, time or skills welcomed in exchange for a good feed

With the motto #feedbelliesnotbins, the Real Junk Food Project CENTRAL has developed a cult following amongst people mindful of sustainability and wastefulness in the food chain.

In this new partnership, The Real Junk Food Project CENTRAL will take-over The Hive Café & Bakery for a monthly pop-up community café, offering home-cooked breakfasts and lunches that makes the most out of good quality donated food that otherwise would have gone to landfill.

The Real Junk Food Café CENTRAL takeover will form part of The Hive’s Saturday Sessions, in which the building, gallery and public spaces open on a Saturday for tours and events. October’s takeover coincides with the opening of a new exhibition Vital Beauty, which explores the re-imagining of six buildings belonging to the Ruskin Mill Trust, of which The Hive is one. The exhibition looks back through the history of these buildings and their transformations referencing John Ruskin’s views on architecture and in particular his book The Seven Lamps of Architecture (1849). (Free Exhibition - Separate ticket required for entry)

The Hive’s Exhibitions and Heritage Programme Manager Rachael Cooksey explains: “The Hive’s collaboration with The Real Junk Food Project continues our ethos of seed-to-table. Through caring for the land, plants and animals, we also learn to care for ourselves and those around us. Rather than food going to waste it will nourish diners alongside establishing a community hub at The Hive, which is an important development for us.”

The Hive is a community hub for Birmingham in an historic building, with an organic café, craft workshops, exhibitions and event spaces. It is part of the Ruskin Mill Trust family.

The Real Junk Food Café take-over takes place on the second Saturday of the month, starting the 9th January. Pre-booking required via Eventbrite

PLEASE NOTE 1 TICKET = 1 TABLE - Maximum of 4 people per table
