Food-waste supermarket opens in Leeds

A food-waste supermarket, the first of its kind in the UK, has opened in Pudsey, a suburb of Leeds. The Sharehouse sells surplus food donated by restaurants, allotments, supermarkets and other local businesses, most of which would have ended up in landfill. It is the brainchild of the Real Junk Food Project, a campaigning group that runs food-waste cafes throughout the country. The Project plans to introduce the scheme to every city in the UK.
