The Magic Hat Café, Newcastle’s weekly food waste pop-up kitchen and market, has crowdfunded an expansion into permanent premises, raising more than £20,000 in 28 days.

The Magic Hat Café and takeaway – which serves homemade food made with surplus food from shops, restaurants and supermarkets – pops up at Byker Community Centre on Friday evenings, and runs a pay-as-you-feel market on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. Since its launch, the café, part of The Real Junk Food Project, has rescued more than 10,500kg of edible food from landfill and served more than 4,500 meals.
