Food waste update (Marketplace)

Food waste update (Marketplace)


[ ♪♪♪ ]>>David: So we’ve got
quite a bit of food in here. We’re back on the case.>>Packaged cauliflower. Not even past the
best before date.>>David: Investigating how
much food’s getting trashed behind big stores like Walmart. One year later, have they
cleaned up their act? For Walmart,
whose responsibility is this to try to reduce food waste?>>Well it’s our responsibility.>>David: After our story airs,
these kids take action.>>There’s so many people
without food and they’re throwing it out.>>I want it to be fixed.>>David: Talking trash… Only on your Marketplace. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>David: After months of
research and more than a dozen separate dives into Walmart’s
waste, we’ve found it all. Yogurt.
Poultry. Baked goods.
Frozen dinners. Even juices.>>The best before date is
almost two months away. And it’s sealed.>>David: Perfectly edible food. All of it…trashed. Last year we asked Walmart
spokesperson Alex Roberton why this was happening. What I don’t understand
is how you could have so many bins out the back of
multiple stores, day after day after day, that are
full of seemingly good food. You can’t have
that much returned.>>For sure, there’s mistakes
that are being made and that’s one of the things that we
need to do is tighten up the execution of our in store
processes so that food that is going into the bins,
we need to be more certain that that is food that
needs to be thrown out.>>David: You get that
food waste is a problem, and that you’re a
part of that problem.>>Exactly, yeah. I think we feel that
we’re on the right track. We have a lot of work to do to
get to where we want to be.>>David: Can we come
back and check in with you?>>Yeah, absolutely. I wish you would, yeah.>>David: So now, we’re
taking him up on that offer. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>David: We’re going
back to Walmart to ask… What’s changed since last year? Hey, Alex.>>Hey, David,
nice to see you again.>>David: It’s been a year since
our story first broadcast..>>Food waste
by large retailers.>>David Common
goes dumpster diving.>>David: ..and we
heard a lot from you… And many of you took your
concerns right to Walmart.>>It’s a lot of the same
questions that you are asking what– what can we
do about food waste?>>David: What’s changed
since the last time we talked?>>what you’re seeing in this
store here is what the evolution is of a Walmart Supercentre and
so we’ve redesigned what the Supercentre looks like and
how it operates and how we process food. So what you’re seeing here is
eventually what we’re going to roll out to our stores
across the country.>>David: That includes a
new cold room to keep produce fresh longer. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>David:And through
this door…>>This is our prep room.>>David: Yeah.>>This is where we process food
that’s been put on discount.>>David: More stores are
now doing markdowns like this… This is food that’s approaching
its best before date?>>That’s right. It’s approaching– it’s getting
close to its peak freshness. But it’s not expired so
it’s still good quality food, but it might not get
sold unless we discount it. So we make it more available
for customers so that it doesn’t wind up becoming waste.>>David: Right. Plus, there’s a new procedure,
rolling out across the country, targeting a big source of waste. When just one piece of produce
in a bigger package goes bad. So this– all of this would
have been apples that were in a bag, but maybe
one of them was bad?>>That’s right.>>David: And now, you’re going
to do what with them?>>So what we do with these
is we’ll package them together and make a different
bag of assorted produce items.>>David: But sell it for less?>>And sell it for less. And we bring them out
to a cart like this here.>>David: Oh, so here’s
one right here.>>So you’ll get, uh, how many
apples do we have here, 7 apples? For a dollar. Which is a great
value for customers.>>David: Indeed it is
popular with customers, but most of Walmart’s
stores aren’t yet like this. When we spoke to Walmart,
the bins of tossed food were still locked up at
the stores we looked at.>>So those bins are there to
collect food that has gone past its expiration date or
where there’s any safety concern whatsoever. The fact is there’s always going
to be some food waste and we’re trying to minimize that food
waste as much as possible.>>David: Where is
Walmart now focusing its food saving efforts?>>On reducing the waste. We want to sell as much as we
can and then whatever doesn’t get sold we want to donate
as much of that as possible. So the ultimate goal, at the
end of the day, is to have as much food that we purchase
as possible to be consumed by somebody.>>David: And for Walmart,
whose responsibility is this to try to reduce food waste?>>Well, it’s our
responsibility, the food that we buy and we try
to process it as best we can. So there’s as little waste
as possible at the end of the chain.>>David: Like, you’re trying to
get your own house in order?>>That’s right.>>David: Walmart is feeling
the pressure and nationwide, it’s starting to change.>>In the last year
since you guys visited us, we’ve reduced our overall
food waste, so the food that you see in the bins, by 20 percent.>>David: Though we can’t verify
it, 20 percent is a big change. Thousands of kilograms
that’s being saved. And in just the year since
we went diving through Walmart’s dumpsters. Is the job done?>>No, we still have more to do. And we’re continuing
working on our programs, working on our
training in stores. And that’s also
delivering good results.>>David: In Canada, we leave it
up to supermarkets like Walmart to police their own food waste. But other countries
have taken action. France recently
banned food waste, requiring supermarkets to
give it to local charities and shelters. Italy offers a tax break
to grocers who do that. Some US states
have also taken action. In Canada, though,
there is no federal policy to deal with food waste. Last year we asked Minister Of
Agriculture, Laurence Macaulay, why we’re so far behind. I want to give you the
opportunity to just acknowledge that food waste is an issue,
if you so believe it.>>Oh, I believe that food waste
will be looked at in the policy frame when we–>>David: Is it a
problem in Canada? I mean is it something that
needs to be addressed?>>Well, what we want to do is
to address the total food policy issue in this country.>>David: The feds are now
working on a new food policy. 40,000 Canadians have given
their input and many say food waste should be a priority. The government, though,
hasn’t done anything yet. We’ll have to
wait till next year, when the new policy is expected. But these kids can’t wait.>>There’s people who don’t
have enough food to eat.>>David: They saw a need
and are now fighting for change.>>Hello, Mr Chair
and councillors.>>David: Hear their story next,
only on your Marketplace. Got a story you think
we should investigate? Email us at…>>David: Talking trash,
on your Marketplace. Four months until
it’s best before date. Marketplace found full bins
of seemingly good food being tossed at multiple stores. All right,
here’s some bins. And our original story
was watched in classrooms across Canada. Dozens of teachers got in touch
with us and many students were motivated to act. Including in Millgrove, Ontario.>>Okay, so what’d
you think of that?>>Bad.>>Horrible.>>Disgusting.>>They went all across the
country and found stores that were doing this.>>It’s really bad.>>There’s so many people
without food and they’re throwing it out.>>David: Now, the grade two to
five kids weren’t just going to watch and forget. So here’s where
things get amazing.>>They were so angry
and so passionate. And they knew right away that
they needed to do something to fix it.>>David: Jennifer Kershawe
is their teacher.>>The kids gave up two recesses
and lunches a week since January for five or six months
to work on this.>>David: Step one. After school, kids like Maya
go to stores themselves. Ask managers when and
why food is thrown out. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>Why would they do that? Like, there’s people that
don’t have enough food to eat.>>David: All right,
here’s some bins. Then, they remember
something from our story.>>This is fresh
corn on the cob. There’s nothing wrong with it.>>David: Okay, this will
disgust some people but… ..those are still good.>>I can’t believe you did that!>>David: They’re still good.>>The guy in the movie thingy,
he ate the blueberries. Nothing’s wrong with him.>>Most of that stuff
is still good to eat.>>David: So they tried a
little in-class experiment.>>We brought food in and it
was past the best before date. And three weeks after,
then it started to mould.>>David: By now,
the kids are telling others. Creating their own presentation
and forging a plan to make their community a better place. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>David: They go door to door
gathering more than 1500 signatures on a
petition and then head to city hall…with a plan.>>They decided it would be
great if Hamilton would have a cold storage truck to pick up
the food from the grocery stores and deliver it
directly to the food banks.>>Hello Mr Chair
and councillors, we are here…>>David: But this
is no fluffy field trip. The kids came prepared. Here’s Gabe…>>18 percent of
Hamilton lives in poverty. That’s about 96,000 of us
that need help getting food on the table. A grocery store throws out 30-45
large bins of perfectly edible food each week and all these
people need help getting food. Why can’t that food go on their
tables and not in the landfill?>>David: Next up, Elana…>>Our project would empower all
citizens especially those trying to get back on their feet. One of the reasons that
grocery stores aren’t donating right now, is because they’re
worried about donating their short dated food because
they’re worried that at the food banks it’s not going to get
handled properly and someone could get sick. So how are we
going to fund this? Money from the waste management
budget because waste diversion does fall under that topic. [ Applause ]>>David: The mayor
seems almost stunned…>>Not only well presented,
but they have a business plan to boot.>>David: And he
agrees with them.>>This is certainly an
issue that’s worthy of not only exploration,
but implementation, I would think.>>David: The kids could be
getting a city truck to collect food that stores are about to
throw away and bring it to those who can use it. Council is going to revisit the
class’ request in December. They even get a response
from grocery chain Sobey’s, that the class’ idea
would be a perfect fit for their local store. Just done the
big presentation. How do you think it went?>>I think it went great. They said that they are going to
put food recovery and waste diversion in the
food strategy plan.>>David: You know Elana,
we have done a lot of work at Marketplace trying to help
people understand this issue. And you really understand it and
you’ve done even more work than we did, so it’s
so great to see that. Congratulations.
>>Thank you.>>David: Do you think
something’s going to change?>>I think a lot of things will. I want it to be fixed. It needs to be better, and if
that ever happens we’d be a role model for all of the world.>>David: Good stuff, fella. Good kid. [ ♪♪♪ ]>>David: Left to our

  1. The why reason a lot store throw stuff away because they cannot sell it and plus they have policy if employees take it home some store deems it as theft

  2. Lol, they throw them in trash compactors now hahaha.

  3. I love these kids!

  4. I work for a school cafeteria company and omg on friday the food waste hurts my soul!! My previous company allowed us to bring any extra food home (i would drop off at my hubby's work). My new company says NOTHING can leave and EVERYTHING must be thrown in the garbage. It kills me to see perfectly good food just being thrown into the trash when there are families that are starving and cant even get enough food to keep the kids properly nourished.

  5. my friend was doing this years and years ago they must have got a tip from a diver before thinking about making this video. you can find some good products that are thrown out if you're lucky that can last a few more days still.

  6. Please tell me the location of these garbage bins. I am going to get some free food.

  7. Why can't food be sent to shelters? or have them pick it up? Unfortunately, the thinking is probably, if we give away food for free, it will negatively impact revenue on our food sales in-store, because there will be this expectation of free food on a regular basis. Sad, but probably the reason.

  8. I would eat the baked goods out of the bin. They're not that dirty,and they're packaged.

  9. Whats changed? He grew a beard

  10. There is a tremendous amount of food waste, some of it is junked for reasons people may not know. Customers return food, yes they return food to Walmart for whatever reason and even thou some of it is sealed it still has to be junked. Have you even seen meat products on shelves other than the cooler section where a shopper decided against it, again tossed for a reason. I'm sure you don't want to be eating chicken that's been sitting in the toy department for god knows how many hours. Maybe there was issue with refrigeration the consumer is unaware of, so food is tossed into a dumpster. Sometimes we don't know the whole story. But that being said, there is a huge waste, but sometimes for a reason.

  11. I dont think it has changed I work at Walmart and when we do the donation bin we cut open the product and discard it all into a single bin for tomorrow mornings food donation truck to come pick it up. This causes food contamination so I dont think the company is really donating it but rather just putting on a show and then discarding it.

  12. Not a fan of CBC, but this is great.

  13. How is this even a question? Reduce food waste through the big chains. People are hungry. Make it a policy. Either pay for senseless garbage disposal for food that is still good and safe, or make it more available to those in need at decreased prices or donated to shelters.

  14. 2:17 "What's changed since the last time?"

    he grew a beard

  15. Best before date is a joke!! Canadians should come and learn it from the best…The Asians…!! When there is so much food shortage you just cannot be soo picky…If it look and taste good eat it…!! 😀😀😀👏🏽👏🏽

  16. sad when children have to do your JOB for you

  17. This is incomplete reporting. Food that is discarded consists of items people pick off the shelves, place in their carts, and subsequently decide not to purchase prior to leaving the store. For perishables that must be refrigerated constantly, the quality of these items becomes uncertain. The same people howling food waste would be the individuals suing the store when they get food poisoned. Worse, if the food is donated and subsequently poisons an impoverished person, the army of tort lawyers armed with class action suits will be sufficient to take the beaches of Normandy in world war 3. Would you purchase eggs found in the shoe aisle of Walmart? Would you buy meat tucked between car tires on sale? I observe this whenever I go to the grocery store. There items if left out for the entire day cannot be resold in good conscience to the public. Think for a second about the fact that the store loses money on unsold items. Think that they also receive a tax deduction for donations. There is nothing gained in throwing out valuable goods, unless there is the possibility for harm to the public. It’s sad Walmart’s spokespeople couldn’t make that point clearly to you.

  18. Waste food eat human being next 😭😂😂😂👌🤣🙏💀

  19. I'm a cashier at food basics and we sell reduced produce. Funniest thing is that the other day there were reduced plantains that were dark… That's the perfect time to cook them!

  20. what if you set up your crib in a walmart dumpster

  21. People will still be starving even if we don't waste food…go Vegan😎

  22. Poor spokesman, he has worked so hard that he hasn't had time to shave in that one year.

  23. these kids are amazing. I want kids like this

  24. Our Walmart has locking dumpsters .

  25. I work at Walmart in the Meat Department.

    First things first i do throw out few meats everyday and thats because:

    1. The meat was not in the refrigerated place.
    2. The package was ripped.
    3. Product was damaged.
    these are the top 3 issue

  26. Which Walmart is that??? Looks clean. Seem fishy

  27. Dunno where this was filmed, but here in FL they've been doing the 40-90% off clearance on most foods for years. Don't remember the last time I bought full price deli meats, fresh meat, or baguette bread there. Wish they'd do it for fruits n veggies though.

  28. I've worked in retail previously and a good deal of food waste comes from certain food safety rules. Yeah these rules suck and so does food waste but it's generally a " better safe than sorry" situation
    Specifically regarding that which gets tossed before it expires:
    -If items are found on shelves or in carts with no way to know how long they've been out, you can't put it back on the shelf. Anyone in retail knows customers always leave things where they ought not.
    -If customers return food items, they must be tossed… especially if they left the store
    -Any item that has gone outside of the temperature safe zone must me tossed out… you wouldn't really want them to be selling you something that's supposed stay cold if it had been left at room temp for 30 mins

  29. Toronto Rehab hospital wastes an incredible amount of food everyday. I know because I worked in the kitchen. Everything goes to garbage. No food donation, recycle or separation of mixed material. Prepackaged, cans, cooked meals, bottles, packets, whatever. All goes straight into the same regular garbage bags.

  30. God Bless marketplace for caring so much. it's an inspiration to see the kids follow through on making sure something is done about food wasting. I think its sad that a lot of the food being waisted is coming from poor countries that don't have enough to eat themselves. I heard this expression recently. make your life simple so others can simply live. we should all follow that motto.

  31. You trust your security to us, and toss out this?

  32. This should have happened a LONG time ago… I am glad that Marketplace did this but I am amazed by how the children are more informed than most adults…..

  33. all i see are hot white bearded men …

  34. Hats off to these kids. I hate to throw food. Coming from India and now living in Canada I am blessed to have all but there are over a billion people who do not have access to food daily. From Africa, India and china and a lot of countries. Even in Canada for god sake.

  35. Okay i dont get this. On one end, there are businesses changing "best before dates", which was also featured in one of your episodes. Then there are some who waste still good food? To me that doesnt add up.

  36. People have no idea how much money it cost to donate food to shelters or food pantry

  37. I do see these discounted price stickers at my Walmart here in the States, but they're always for the bakery items (those carts are pretty much how my family always finds our desserts, lol. A discounted apple pie and then we'll buy a cheap variety of French vanilla ice cream. Heaven).

    But I digress. Look at all those apples shown there. Are that many people REALLY going to buy all of that? I'd say the store should look into purchasing less since buying too much can be wasteful, too. Analyze trends of when and how many items are sold throughout the year to get a good indication of how much you truly need.

  38. I still HATE Wal-Mart! Before it was JUST garbage & worth NOTHING to them but, now they decided to make a profit off it instead of what they SHOULD have done and donated it to shelters and took a tax right off if Canada offers those. Wal-Mart is disgusting!

  39. wow… here in australia we have been marking down items that get close to the use by date for a long time… rip merica.

  40. I should take a trip to Canada for some free food.

  41. Kids will change their opinions really soon though ;_;

  42. David Common:
    Ok, this will disgust some people but… (eats some blueberries at 8:13)
    These are still good

    Female Marketplace employee:
    Oh, I can't believe you did that!

    David Common:
    There still good

    Hmmm. Did she just contradict the basis of argument that Walmart is throwing good food away?

  43. Please don’t use children to make your point.
    Otherwise great video

  44. This is all wonderful lip service from walmart for the sake of creating a positive public image.  I'm not sure who to write to but I just left my neighbourhood Walmart in Edmonton, AB.   It was 10 mins to closing and the deli counter was FULL of fresh cooked rotisserie chicken, chicken breast wedges, assorted premium cooked items.   When I say full I mean there were at least 12 or more chickens, and at least 15 or more chicken breast wedges, chicken pieces and so on.  I thought how lucky for me, they will likely mark it down.   I have to cook chicken daily for my Yorkshire Terrier and this is a boon for me if it's on sale!   I quickly went to get my items and waited and waited.  A minute or two before 11 and man came with huge clear garbage bags and began throwing the fresh cooked chicken in the bags carelessly as could be.  They were coming out of the package and going all over the place.   I asked him if I could buy one or two.  He said NO.   I proceeded to call the store manager who was a little irritated and being called at closing but he listed to what I had to say.  I begged him to let me buy them.  I assured him – no human would eat them.  I have 3 dogs (one sick yorkie).  Well he hummed and hawed and said I could have one or two at 25% off.   I told him I knew they were off to the compactor and he said  yes, there was nothing he could do.  I made him a cash offer. They were normally $8.97/each.  I would take everything 50% off.  No way he said.  Other staff came and looked at me like I was nuts trying to save 3 huge garbage bags full of premium meat.   I am so SICKENED by this tonight.   Does anyone know how much effort goes into raising food animals in our deep freeze Alberta?   GET REAL WALMART.  All this CBC exposure did was to keep things hush hush from the public.  Your few token marked down veggies and day old buns at the end of the isle is pitiful!  Shame on you for charging ridiculous prices on necessary food items only to throw so much away.

  45. Good for those kid's I'd be extremely proud

  46. Well its because the customers are too picky, throwing suspicious food away is safer than risking a law suit that costs millions of dollars and dereputations.

  47. I bet most of the people who were”disgusted”throw at least 3 plates of leftovers per week…let’s start with our consumption, for start…

  48. It not just Wal-Mart. Japan does it too. In Japan the food has to be perfect no damage food

  49. I hate the way the programmes aren't as long I'd rather wait a bit to watch one video than watch one part a week or whatever

  50. Those kids touched my soul! Wow! 💖

  51. Dont worry I used to work at a grocery store and we were just told to rip the slimy mushy part off the lettuce so we can still sell it

  52. it the same in juneau, alaska. walmart was here, they thrown out so much foods. the employees worked there. they have no ideas that there was so many foods are wasted

  53. kid's English was first class not even US people could speak like that- very interesting

  54. Why can't the us do this I haven't seen a section for clearance produce in dallas tx yet

  55. That’s not a solution tho🧠🤷🏻‍♀️

  56. I love that you do updates in order to keep companies accountable! Awesome to see 🙂

  57. Some Supermarkets claimed they sent food to shelters and the homeless sue them because of food poisoning. So they stop sending and just throw away instead.

  58. The Wal-Mart dude aged 20 years in 1 year. Thank you CBC! 😂😂😂

  59. Agree to many comments here. They canno simply put food produce which sitting in cloth department with no clue how long, or a returned unpacked cookie. There's the risk for customers.

  60. Oh so that explains why whenever I walk past the local walmart going to work (because my work is located behind walmart) their trash bins are always behind fences and all locked up.

  61. what a great teacher and class 🙂

  62. That's what I call good journalism 👌

  63. Hopefully Walmarts across North America does this. Less food waste so that resources are managed and lower cost food for those with low income

  64. 2018 and they still throw out tons of food!!

  65. Sadly food waste in grocery stores and others are being passed to customers on the prices we pay. The food waste idea the kids gave is awesome but the grocery stores should pay for the truck and not pass the bill to city tax payers. If the idea the kids put together for them to look good in the media, have big impact on number cruncher's in big groceries stores. They know about this issues, they know what they have to do, but always find a way to let consumers pay their way and pass for the good people. Lower the prices of products in stores first and people will be able to afford the items from the start and hence less food wasted. Marketplace on CBC is one of the best shows out there , tyvm

  66. This is wonderful what they've done. I hope this spreads to not only Walmarts across the countries they're in, which is one of, if not the, biggest grocer store in many places, as well as to other big stores. I also noticed their Walmart had a bulk food area. I hope that spreads to the U.S where I haven't seen that yet in their stores, though the ones where I live don't even sell fresh produce. Higher availability and use of bulk foods could help reduce food waste, provide healthier, unprocessed foods, and provide food at a cheaper price.

  67. Bravo, for these socially sensitized, say, children and of course the adults. These children surely learn from educational (socially anyway) adults. So, they all merit congratulations.

  68. omg, these kids don't even know what they're saying! stop training kids to deliver your speeches. >.>

  69. Just returned 3 packages of unopened dates: Walmart clerk marked barcode with marker so they will not be returned to shelf -but put in garbage… this should not be still happening! Walmart should post signs letting customers know that any returned food items will end up in the dump.

  70. I’d be interested in a follow up story. Did the city do it? Have the children become even more involved in social issues? Have the food banks accepted or refused the food? What do the food bank clients think of this program? Have any other programs been launched? Inquiring minds want to know.

  71. This is too cute and awesome, go future generations!

  72. Is there anything cuter than these motivated kids? I just love 'em!! 😀

  73. I think Canada and the U.S.A are probably the 2 countries who waste the most amount good food, I could be wrong but don't think I'm far off

  74. A lot of stores in my area do this– as soon as it's either past or approaching the best by date, they mark it down halfway. Smart idea, really. I use the food within the day typically.

  75. I love market place! Oh and they didn’t even pay me for my review! Haha

  76. These kids are amazing! Kudos to them for taking more action than most adults do.

  77. Would be curious where they are now!

  78. Donating food is not a good solution to solving food waste.

  79. I mean, while you can give away food to charities, someone still needs to pay for transportation. I imagine it gets expensive overtime.

  80. asian markets just move the meat to the frozen section and sell for cheaper….

  81. These kids are our future!!! So amazing to see this and some credit I give to their parent's. I am not a parent but I would hope to have a son or daughter like these trail blazers!

  82. WalMart stores suck. They are money hungry and just never going to change. I am in the US. I have sworn off WalMart and will not shop there even if it means doing with out favourite coffee. I am finding a suitable sub.

  83. My store in US work with local food banks, they pick up all the foods for us, and we get a tax deduction AND we don't pay anything. There are still a lot of foods to be thrown out, such as rotten food, food trimmings, etc.

  84. We all know damn well they wouldn’t have cleaned up there act if they were never caught. Could’ve just don’t the right thing morally isn’t instead of being put to shame.

  85. Where does this affect only america or canada too because that would be great to have it in canada because i see alot of bins in the back by my walmart

  86. Waste not Want not!

  87. Walmart waste soooo much food is unbelievable .I wich I can post pictures of they're baskets full with claims . Food that still good .they should guive it to employees charity or Wetever but no they will choose the garbage can

  88. I love CBC for educating us.

  89. that's a lie walmart does not donate any thing .. if they can't make money they trash it

  90. When I was younger I worked in a store people would change their mind after picking up packages of food that needed to be maintained at a certain temperature and just leave it with the bread or soap etc we had to "write it off" so at times customers are to BLAME

  91. SO MUCH PLASTIC 🙁

  92. Instead of SNAP programs they should just hand out expired food to the poor that way it saves on government money and less food waste. And who care if its unfair people in the world should know if you dont work you wont be eating well simple as that. Watching SNAP people use there cards to buy lobster they should be getting only left over of what winners eat

  93. Investigate Insta carts for stealing from customer's credit and debit cards etc.

  94. i'd say enough with Elections, just get cbc market place to fix and change this country! 🙂 they have already done more then any priminister in my life :_P

  95. I'm holding on my tears….brave kids, I'm touch

  96. I used to work at Walmart about 20 years ago in Los Angeles the area was low income we used to do that because we used to see people a lot of them with kids look in our trash for food and they would pull out the bad food and take it and we felt terrible so we started putting food that we knew they over ordered that would always be left over to expire it always would into the bins and I know I felt a lot better about seeing them take the food that wasnt expired for their kids I assure you none of it gets hauled off to the dumps… Thanks Market Place hopefully you can feed these people now why don't you do a report on something that might help people not starve them WOW

  97. It all seems nice, but actually, what business is it of the government or anybody else, what a company does with its own product. They own it. It's no different than telling me I can't throw out food from my refrigerator because it's still edible. It's my food.

  98. It totally breaks my heart to see so much food go to waste and I struggle to buy and provide food to my family 😭😭 😭

  99. Should go to the food bank
