Covid 19 update

During the current crisis all our services have been suspended while we support Wigan Council to ensure the most vulnerable in our community have access to food. All donations of food and resources at this time will help us provide food parcels for families in need and those self isolating and prepare ready meals for our elderly citizens.

Thank you for your support.

Who we are

Fur Clemt is part of the global 'Real Junk Food' movement. Our organisation is dedicated to reducing edible wasted food reaching landfil, by collecting it from suppliers and making it available to the community through its cafes, food outlets and food sharing system.

Did you know that Fur Clemt is the local dialect for 'Very Hungry"? An apt name for our cafes!

Our cafes and food share schemes are currently closed to the public, however, we are continuing to ensure our community have access to food during this crisis by working with our food waste partners and Wigan Council. Details of how to access emergency support is available on our face book page and Wigan MBC website.

Why we do what we do

1/3 of all food purchased in the UK is wasted. When we consider this we also need to think about the resourses that went into the productiion and distribution of the goods including the energy and pagaking. When we waste food we waste these resourses too. If we want to leave a world fit for the coming generations we must address waste issues NOW. We have chosen to focus on food waste as in our area many people struggle to make ends meet and by focusing on food we can help with social issue too.  

Our organisation is primarily volunteer run, as you can see we recently recieved some exciting news. The work of our volunteers has been recognised by the highest accolade for community groups.
