A LAWYER from a Keighley firm is volunteering with a pioneering food initiative.

Kerry Milwain, a commercial property solicitor at AWB Charlesworth, is helping out at the Real Junk Food Project.

The anti-waste scheme, founded in Leeds in 2013, makes food regarded as surplus available on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis.

It now has 100 cafes worldwide and two warehouses and runs an education programme through schools.

Kerry became involved after volunteering at the project’s Saltaire cafe and has supported the team with her legal knowledge.

“Through its education programme – Fuel for School – the project now feeds thousands of children every week,” she said.

“It takes food regarded as surplus that would otherwise go to landfill.”
