Gisela Endres, senior contract manager for Veolia Brent, said: “Across the UK we throw away 4.5 million tonnes of edible food each year - that’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium to the brim eight times.

"This new sustainable community cookbook will share ways that we can all help to reduce food waste, save money and celebrate the creativity and culture of our residents.”

Cllr Krupa Sheth, Brent Council's environment lead, said: "Brent is one of the most diverse boroughs, and we have some amazing cuisine from all over
the world on our doorstep.
