A new scheme to help divert surplus supermarket food from landfill has opened in Oxfordshire.

The South Oxfordshire Food and Education Alliance in Didcot, in partnership with national charity FareShare, delivers the food to charities helping people in need.

But it also provides valuable work experience and qualifications for young people, including many who struggled in formal education.
