Educate Retailers on Food Donation Legislation
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
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?

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)
