Chester Pay as you feel cafe

When Elitsa Yakimov first heard about the Real Junk Food Project, a global initiative intercepting surplus food to be redistributed on a pay as you feel model, she knew her hometown of Chester had to have one. After running her own Pay as you feel (PAYF) cafe for the first year Elitsa found that there was a lot more on offer than reduced waste and affordable food- the cafe became a place of belonging for some of the community's most socially isolated citizens.
