The search is on for an army of volunteers to help cut food waste and save Londoners money.

The campaign group Love Food Hate Waste is looking for people who are willing to show Londoners where they're going wrong. **

On London Tonight at 5.30pm food waste champion David Etheridge will be giving top tips and explaining how you can get involved.
