TRJFP intercepts food that would otherwise not make it to plate and serves it as delicious meals. Alongside the positive environmental impacts of reducing edible food waste, the project has clear social benefits through operating a strictly Pay-as-you-feel (PAYF) policy. Transcending monetary transactions, this liberates people to use their skills and attributes as well as money to pay for their meals, & highlights the absurdity that the produce used has been stripped of its monetary value but retains its nutritional value. TRJFP encourages a reflection on how we value food as a resource.

Movies that Matter believes that the film camera is a powerful weapon against social indifference. Film has an unprecedented capacity to open eyes. What cannot be accomplished by spoken and written language, is sometimes achieved by motion picture. Cinema fascinates, stimulates, inspires and raises awareness. It serves as a mirror and helps us to become familiar with other cultures. Inspired films incite to compassion, reflection and discussion. Films have an emotional appeal and serve as a mouthpiece for victims of injustice.
