This is an inspiring report from NZ’s Campbell Live about how waste food from shops and supermarkets, still quite edible, yet destined for landfills, is gathered up and distributed to the less fortunate folks who can’t afford food. This is efficient recycling at its best … with a unique touch of kindness to boot.
“Earlier this year, Campbell Live covered New Zealand’s $872 million food scandal and highlighted the amount of food we waste and the food we buy to eat but never do.
As a nation, we throw away 122,000 tonnes of food per annum, just from households.
That study got us thinking, and many of you too – what about commercial food waste, uneaten food from supermarkets, cafes and restaurants?
Sadly, most of it is also dumped – but not all.
Campbell Live reporter Jendy Harper spent the day rescuing the food and feeding the less fortunate in Wellington.”
