Who we are

Fur Clemt is part of the global 'Real Junk Food' movement. Our organisation is dedicated to reducing edible wasted food reaching landfill, by collecting it from suppliers and making it available to the community through its cafes, food outlets and food sharing scheme.

Did you know that Fur Clemt is the local dialect for 'Very Hungry"? An apt name for our cafes!

Our cafes are currently closed due to Covid restritions but our food share schemes are open.

Why we do what we do

1/3 of all food purchased in the UK is wasted. When we consider this we also need to think about the resources that went into the production and distribution of the goods including the energy and packaging. When we waste food we waste these resourses too. If we want to leave a world fit for the coming generations we must address waste issues NOW. 

Our organisation is primarily volunteer run, as you can see we recently recieved some exciting news. The work of our volunteers has been recognised by the highest accolade for community groups.
