Bistro with Big Al’s Big Choir

We invite you to the next amazing Rainbow Junktion Bistro on Friday 22 November at 7pm. This time we will be joined by BIG AL’S BIG CHOIR to bring some funk to your foodie delights! They’re even bring a live band with them!

Our goal is to put an end to unnecessary food waste and poverty. We collect the food that supermarkets, businesses, and charities throw away and redistribute it to our community. The food is pay-as-you-feel to make it accessible to everyone and anyone.

As part of this mission we run evening bistro/ fundraisers, such as this one. The bistro includes a three course meal, talks and performance including the Steel Pan Sparrows and BIG AL’S BIG CHOIR.

Please book a place and if you are unable to attend cancel your ticket through the Eventbrite website.

Community Bistro Friday 1st November

There is another community bistro on Friday 1st November, a chance to sooth your nerves after Halloween! We will be creating more amazing three course meals from perfectly good food that was otherwise being thrown out. This is part of our attempt to stop food going to waste and to highlight the issue. The meal is Pay As You Feel but you need to book a ticket for which we make a small charge. You can book your ticket via our Facebook page.

Unity Day 3rd August 2019

A fabulous time at Hyde Park Unity Day on the Rainbow Junktion stall. A BIG THANK YOU to the volunteers for cooking and serving with us. Also incredibly emotional about winning a community recognition award. And we made £400 to put towards the cafe so thank you all.

Nearly Famous

Rainbow Junktion is going to be on telly!

Born Famous is a series about celebrities’ children visiting the neighbourhoods where their parents grew up. And so, last summer, Scary Spice Mel B’s daughter Phoenix spent a week in Hyde Park- wandering the streets, meeting locals, volunteering at Rainbow Junktion and Coffee on the Crescent, having fun at Unity Day, etc etc.

The first episode is tonight, Monday 5th August on Channel 4 at 10pm. Phoenix’s episode is on Monday 12 August at 10pm on Channel 4. Should be fun- here’s the trailer:

“The breakfast cafe where customers don’t have to pay”

A really interesting article about some of the “Pay what you like …. if you like” or Pay As You Feel (PAYF) cafes that are around the country now.

It is sad that we have so much food waste that needs dealing with and that we have so much food poverty as well. When are we going grasp the fact that there is more than enough to go round, we just need to share and not waste!
