Bloomberg... Food to Homeless Shelters. [Moved from General Chowhounding board]


I'm trying to be political, but I was wondering what others thought about this. It seem like such a waste.

  1. I agree, it seems a criminal waste, but I think these attitudes are becoming more and more prevalent. I'm in the UK and a while ago had prepared a 'cricket tea' (enough sandwiches, filled rolls and various types of cake for 30 cricketers to eat halfway through the game). The match was called off at the last minute due to the weather so I rang round my local hostels for the homeless and offered to take the whole lot round for their residents. Every one said they couldn't accept it for health and safety reasons (unspecified) so the whole lot went in the bin. Common sense takes a back seat it seems..........
