Educate Retailers on Legislation

The perception seems to be that donating food is a legal liability - if someone got sick from eating that food then the retailer would be liable. However, there is no precedent for this as there has never been a case

An education team with a pro bono lawyer could probably convince some big food retailers to spend their social consciousness money on donating expiring perishable foods to local charities/homeless shelters etc.

Other problems are that this would only help food poverty in relatively well off countries. Also, it seems to be cheaper for retailers to throw out expiring food than to donate

[colemai],我確實同意說服立法機構在說服零售商捐贈食品時遇到問題,儘管如何使其成爲可擴展的解決方案?

_>由無償律師組成的教育團隊可能會說服一些大型食品零售商將其社會意識的錢用於向當地慈善機構/無家可歸者收容所等捐贈過期食品。

_

事實是,如果大型零售商只會將這種行爲視爲回報而不是成本,那麼他們會願意提供時間與律師打交道。我想知道,我們如何才能使零售商更輕鬆,更省時地捐贈食品呢?

_>其他問題是,這隻會幫助相對富裕國家的糧食貧困。

您可能會喜歡[gmikhai]的一個想法,他在其中談論[如何應對發展中國家的飢餓](https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-exclude-starvation-ever-george-mikhailovsky?published = t“ https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-exclude-starvation-ever-george-mikhailovsky?published=t”)。 Quote:“另一方面,飯店,小酒館和其他餐館會浪費很多食物。它們可以相對廉價地進行消毒,冷凍乾燥,均質化,最後壓成小球或團塊。這些小球應免費提供。靠近任何餐廳,超級市場和其他公共場所的地方,尤其是在貧窮國家。” (請參閱文章中的圖片)

[colemai], I do agree that legislation is a problem when convincing retailers to donate food, although how to make it a scalable solution?

_> An education team with a pro bono lawyer could probably convince some big food retailers to spend their social consciousness money on donating expiring perishable foods to local charities/homeless shelters etc. _

Thing is, that big retailers would be interested in providing their time to deal with lawyers if only they would see such act as a return not a cost. I wonder, how we can make it more convenient and less time consuming for retailers to donate food with less effort?

_> Other problems are that this would only help food poverty in relatively well off countries. _ You might like an idea shared by [gmikhai] where he talks about how to deal with hunger in developing countries. Quote: "On the other hand, restaurants, bistros, and other eateries throw out a lot of food waste. They could be relatively inexpensively disinfected, freeze dried, homogenized, and finally pressed into balls or briquettes. These balls shall be available for free near any restaurant, supermarket, and other public places, especially in poor countries." (see a picture in the article)
