    Change the legal system to eliminate liability for restaurants so they can give leftover food away. Right now, a restaurant would be held liable if it knowingly threw food into a dumpster and that people were retrieving it and someone got sick. And ever hear of cross-contamination? How about vermin transmitted diseases? There may be a good reason it was thrown out. Are we now to label thrown out food? Leftover food used to be recycled with hogs and chickens. Good intentions forced the food into dumpsters.

    As an alternative, why not plant fruit trees in vacant lots?

      I know that some stores give their ready to throw out food to some places that give away food to the poor. I know someone who got some great veggies, and he was able to make some nice meals from them. Many dumpster divers know when the food is going to be put out from grocery stores, and some stores place them carefully, so they don't get soiled, not in with trash.That way, the store has no liability, because it is "garbage", but it has been kept in good condition for the divers.
