Brakes Catering Equipment has donated pallets of stock and crockery to The Real Junk Food Project to help transform its ‘Pay As You Feel’ cafés.
The foodservice giant has given away four pallets of stock, crockery, cutlery and bakeware to the charity in Leeds, which turns waste food into healthy meals for community cafés.
“It’s great that we have been able to support a local charity given that we have been serving the UK catering industry from Leeds for over 30 years,” said Brakes channel head for catering equipment Kevin Finlay.
“Leeds is a great city and it is lovely to think that we can give something back to those that need it most, especially at this time of year. Brakes is a big supporter of nominated charities in the UK, including the ‘Meals and More’ initiative which, like The Real Junk Food Project, also provides meals outside of the home to people for whom a hot meal is not always readily available.”
The Real Junk Food Project co-founder Adam Smith added: “The Real Junk Food Project Leeds is incredibly grateful to Brakes for acting responsibly and donating equipment no longer intended to be sold.
“With its kind contribution, we are able to help our family and friends, supply our community cafés, and support other great organisations. We hope the relationship between Brakes Catering Equipment and TRJFP continues and grows, not just locally, but also nationally.”
