Charity Emmaus Leeds is helping former homeless people to improve their diets and cut food waste as part of a new initiative.
The organisation - which provides work and a home for 26 people who used to reside on the streets - has teamed up with Jamie’s Ministry of Food and Love Food Hate Waste to provide training to its residents.
The Emmaus community members are now taking part in a number of courses, including food hygiene, basic cookery, advanced cookery, baking and butchery.
The scheme has already saved the St Mary’s Street charity £6,000 in food bills.
