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
