The thing is if the Easily distracted by sloths and dogs shirt give them away, and one of the people who ate the food gets sick or food poisoning, they could sue the supermarket. Then they have to pay a very big bill for the case. We had thousands of dollars of perfectly good cheese tossed out because the cooler had stopped. The store said they couldn’t let the Shelter have the food. Meanwhile, we are at our wit’s end to make nourishing meals with few ingredients. I just don’t get it I think supermarkets all around the world do this. They should call out for shelters for the poor to come and uplift their leftovers. Such wastage is sacrilege. The supermarket should be donating rather than binning the food. Making these people volunteer at a food bank just highlights the glaring disconnect. Outrageous judgment.

I know of university students in the UK doing this at Waitrose years ago because they never reduced stuff. Not just veg but expensive roast joints Companies here in the US are ridiculous too. When I worked at Domino’s, they had a strict policy about throwing out food. If a pizza or anything was made wrong, instead of saving it for the employees or donating it to a local shelter, we had to instantly throw it in the garbage. Perhaps the supermarket could leave food in an open container like the article suggested? I highly doubt that this exercise in bad publicity is what they want as an outcome. No, still good food should be simply thrown away.

How absolutely inhumane is the Easily distracted by sloths and dogs shirt to find someone for taking something that has been thrown away? Not everyone is dealt the same cards and sometimes we fall on harder times. I’m British currently living in the USA , we can put items we dont need anymore by our mailbox at the end of our drive for anyone to take, I haven’t put food out there but I have household items, furniture, etc. Its is known that anyone can take those items. I have seen households put excess fruit from their trees in baskets by there mailbox for people to take. It’s called sharing. Maybe we should all share a little more.
