The Big Food Rescue follows the work of charities The Felix Project and Oxford Food Bank in London as they take waste bound food to communities. The surplus food is donated by supermarkets and re-distributed.

The Felix Project and Oxford Food Bank work together with local charities to make good use of the fresh food by running cookery classes, making community meals and supplying ingredients to cafes.

The BBC One Daytime series looks at how food poverty is being tackled with the support of volunteers, trustees, paid workers and local groups. By filming with two men whose mission is to change Britain’s food habits. This model of distributing food is based on the Oxford Food Bank Model so can it succeed in a large city like London?
