The Real Junk Food Project Brighton team would relish the opportunity to bring our talented team of chefs to any occasion, to show you what we can produce with surplus food. We’d be honoured to teach you about our ethos and share our experiences to make your unique event a success. There is simply no other catering experience like us.

We have successfully catered several weddings, large conferences at the University of Brighton and Sussex, International Women’s day and Yoga Fest at Brighton Dome, a three-course meal for the Mayor of Brighton, birthday parties and music festivals. We have catered for as many as 3000, and as few as 10 so rest assured we’re flexible enough to cater for your needs, and all from food that would have been thrown away, had we not have saved it. We cater:

  • 3-Course Dinners at a venue of your choice
  • Dinner parties in your home
  • Office Parties
  • Buffet food
  • Corporate Lunches/Dinners
  • Launch Parties
  • Christmas Parties
  • Anniversaries and Birthday Parties
  • Christenings
  • Wedding Receptions
  • Wakes
