The world produces enough food to feed everybody, but it doesn't get distributed.

TOO MUCH GOOD FOOD IS WASTED IN NORTH AMERICA . | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Putting a stop to the waste of good food by retailers would go a long way towards feeding our hungry in the Western World. I recently came off a contract which included cleanup of a major grocery chain and I saw literally thousands of pounds of "imperfect" produce being wasted in the short time I was there. To me, that is a crime, when, even in my little Canadian town, there are people going without.

I agree completely my friend, I have over 15 years grocery managing experience and the waste is insane. We donated a lot of stuff from our bakery, it's people being afraid of getting sued that stops a lot of grocery chains from donating food instead of throwing it out. Did you know there are no FDA rules stating that food has to have an expiration date on it? Companies put dates on stuff without having to hoping people will throw good stuff out and order/buy more before they need to. I think a big part of fixing this could be done easily by eliminating the short dating or dating at all in some cases. Nobody wants to eat bad food I get that, it's just that throwing food away based on the date instead of using our own noses or whatever to check it can be very wasteful. It's a complicated issue, people just need more information about food safety. I have taken multiple classes and am actually licensed as a food inspector in Missouri, the stuff people don't know is entirely too much...

Thanks for the note :-) I've noticed in blogs and news feeds that people are starting to wake up to this and other issues .. particularly the young folks. It's very encouraging indeed :-) Take care friend -- and give your new family members a belly rub for me :-)
