TRJFP Brum is one of our very favourite funky things in Birmingham right now. Saving perfectly fit food that would otherwise go to waste from markets, wholesalers & even artisan producers, TRJFP Brum offer weekly ‘pay-as-you-feel’ Freegan boxes for delivery or collection from their pop up cafe and HQ at Ladywood Community Centre. They plan on growing food fresh in the community gardens and are inviting any budding volunteers, punters or simply hungry passers-by to come along and get stuck in. These are not-for-profit operations, with all money being put back into supporting Birmingham and its residents. So that’s inclusivity as well as delicious dining at the top of the menu, win-win.
The TRJFP pop up cafe opens every Wednesday & Friday at Ladywood Health and Community Centre St Vincent St W, Birmingham B16 8RP. Lunch is 12pm – 2:30pm & dinner 6pm – 7:30pm. Fridays lunch is 12-2pm and there’s an after school tea session 3:30pm – 5pm.
The lunchtime pop-up cafe at Kings Heath Community Centre, 8 Heathfield Rd, Birmingham B14 7DB. Open every Monday from 12pm – 2pm.
There’s also a pop-up at ORT Cafe, 500-504 Moseley Rd, Balsall Heath, Birmingham B12 9AH. Open on the 3rd Saturday of every month 12pm – 4pm.
