A most praiseworthy outlook and activity. Save food and save lives. Could the saved excess food be refrigerated and sent to relieve worldwide famines and abject poverty?
I call upon charities worldwide to investigate this shocking throwing away of edible food. Perhaps their charitable contributions could be used for the preservation and transportation of these excess eatables.
Rather than using the money to buy necessaries at the inflated prices which obtain where food is in short supply.

There’s so much can be done in this and similar areas – but isn’t “low” food prises are something that brings EU farmers’ demands for governmental subsidies (despite bein’ already most subsidized agriworkers in the world afaik)?
When you see simple solution to some problem – look again as usually problem is more complex than you think – and so you must predict consequences.

“using the Internet to share food recovered from supermarket dumpsters while it is still in good condition”

Al Gore needs to get behind this in the USA.

Hey Al hows that outdated Managers Special Hamburger?

It appears to be in good condition.

Imagine a Website like “Al Gore’s still Pretty Green” that announces the times and places for supermarket dumpster diving.

It would just be a matter of time before instead of shopping in the market you just wait for them to throw the food out.

After all it’s still in “Good Condition”.
