Meet Spam From The Hollingbean

This week we introduce you to Spam. A name that was given to one of our volunteers as a child by his school friends, not because of his love for tinned meat, but because of his appearance. 

Spam has a passion for food and music and combines the two taking his business, The Lizard Stage and Cafe to festivals across the UK.

What have we been up to recently?

We definitely started the year as we mean to go on! 
On New Years Day our team was down at the One Church cooking away for our first community Feast of the new year! All the food that we cooked, was as always, made from ingredients that were deemed to be surplus by supermarkets, yet are perfectly edible

The Hollingbean Has Sprouted

The Real Junk Food Project have been working incredibly hard over the summer and many of you may not have heard that our family has grown.

As well as some brilliant new volunteers, we have been reaching out to new communities across Brighton. We've run several local pop-up cafes and our new Hollingbean Cafe has been born.

The Hollingbean is a weekly cafe run from the Hollingdean Community Centre every Thursday from 1-3pm. We have been serving up our lovely intercepted lunches to many new local residents in this part of Brighton and some One Church regulars who are making the trip up the hill.
