Okay, I have to admit, this really bothers me, like, A LOT!
Look how much perfectly good food this lady found in a dumpster behind Whole Foods:
Every time I come to this particular store I find cases of organic food that is thrown out well before its "best by" date. Last night I found enough meat to feed an entire community. I found everything from organic chicken and beef, to Beyond Meat…Everything had been thrown out on or before its "best by" date, and as we know, "best by" dates are not hard rules and everything was still good to consume…I found everything from homemade guac, to salad mixes, to cut up fruits and veggies…I have never seen any discount stickers on any of the items that Whole Foods has thrown out.
I'm flabbergasted at the fact that it's not just food.
Here's a photo of the expiration date on a carton of milk she found, just in case you think I'm nuts:
Also, I think she gave an expiration date in 2023. Yes, it's true...
Like, this is supposed to be Amazon's Whole Foods.
So why is this non-expired food being put to waste instead of being put to use?
I completely understand that you have to make room for more product, but as a family man who makes a solid attempt at all the leftovers in my fridge just to make sure they don't go to waste, this is appalling.
People would eat this food!
You just have to find those people.
This lady is doing the right thing here: she's donating the food that she can, and is handing a lot of the product over to flea market vendors for free.
Maybe Amazon could step their game up a little and follow this individual's example.
