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],我确实同意说服立法机构在说服零售商捐赠食品时遇到问题,尽管如何使其成为可扩展的解决方案?

_>由无偿律师组成的教育团队可能会说服一些大型食品零售商将其社会意识的钱用于向当地慈善机构/无家可归者收容所等捐赠过期食品。

事实是,如果大型零售商只会将这种行为视为回报而不是成本,那么他们会愿意提供时间与律师打交道。我想知道,我们如何才能使零售商更轻松,更省时地捐赠食品呢?

_>其他问题是,这只会帮助相对富裕国家的粮食贫困。

您可能会喜欢[gmikhai]的一个想法,他在其中谈论[如何应对发展中国家的饥饿](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,饭店,小酒馆和其他餐馆会浪费很多食物。它们可以相对廉价地进行消毒,冷冻干燥,均质化,最后压成小球或团块。这些小球应免费提供。靠近任何餐厅,超级市场和其他公共场所的地方,尤其是在贫穷国家。” (请参阅文章中的图片)

[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)
