Vicky visited a FoodCycle project as part of the campaign and after meeting some of the people who use the service, she was keen to do more.

Now Vicky has volunteered at the FoodCycle Walker Project, which is close to where she grew up in an effort to raise awareness.

She added: “FoodCycle is absolutely incredible, and I feel very proud to be an ambassador and support their work.

“I feel like now, more so than ever it’s important that anyone who can, is supporting their community, whether that’s raising awareness or getting stuck in and volunteering.

“You should really get down there – the volunteers whip up amazing food – I came second on Celebrity MasterChef and I couldn’t do half the stuff they do in a FoodCycle kitchen!”
