Food poverty in the UK has increased by more than 160 per cent in the past year, according to some estimates. Yet, 98 per cent of edible surplus food is thrown away by grocers and retailers.

“In the UK, an estimated 20 million tonnes of food is wasted each year across the supply chain (from plough to plate) with at least 400,000 tonnes of this thrown away at retail level,” according to FoodCycle, which served more than 31,000 meals last year to people in need.

Many of them draw a deep sense of purpose from their communities.
