As part of the campaign, children will be challenged to design a takeaway bag for leftovers after a meal out.

Councillor Tiffany Harper said: ‘By sharing ideas and food experiences, we want to demonstrate that we can reduce the food waste in our bins. The Great Food Rescue will be working with local schools, colleges, housing associations, families and community groups. The focus will be on fun and interesting food projects to save money by reducing food being binned.’
