The Big Food Rescue

The Big Food Rescue follows a new charity, as they try to make a dent in the 10 million tonnes of food thrown away in the UK every year.

Robin Aitken and David Cairns aim to stop edible food going to landfill and instead deliver it to charities and people that are in need. They use a business model that's worked for their organisation in Oxford - but can they make it work in London, a city 55 times the size?

The series also showcases inventive schemes from around the country aimed at reducing food waste.
