The UK has a new cafe that offers food you can price yourself called the Pay As You Feel Cafe. The only catch to paying what you want for your meal is that the food is expired. Although expiration dates are scary, they do not always mean that the meal itself has gone bad.
Food that has exceeded its sell-by date is usually still good for a short period of time so it is unfortunate that we usually throw it away. Adam Smith is a chef from Leeds and he opened up a cafe that dished out deliciously healthy yet expired foods. The restaurant called P.A.Y.F (pay as you feel) is the first of its kind in the UK. It's not only a cafe that offers expired food it also helps locals in need by offering them the opportunity to pay what they can for meals.
