Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    My neighborhood grocery has started bagging up bruised and "imperfect" veggies and fruits in 2 to 3 pound sacks and selling them for 99 cents. Since my budget is tight and don't care about a brown spot here and there, I'm grateful. I'm also grateful the food isn't just being thrown away before I can get a chance to buy it (which is what happened before.) I try to buy something from this section every time I visit to let them know it's an appreciated service. Maybe this is something that could be requested at other grocery stores? Also, watch the Documentary "Dive". It's amazing and on Netflix on all the food that gets thrown away from grocery stores.

    One survey suggests that 60 percent of Americans throw out food prematurely because of confusion over expiration dates,--First world problems. I have expired Siriacha in my fridge. It's been expired since 2012. I'm still alive. I would not do that with meat or milk, but everything else is game.

    Restaurants waste a lot of food. I'd rather they donate it, but maybe it's too much of a logistical problem to target folks who need the food.
