Last year France became the first country to ban supermarkets from throwing away/destroying unsold food, forcing them instead to donate it to charities/food banks. Perhaps we could do the same here in Australia?
The new law would increase an already emerging trend for supermarkets to donate to charities/food banks (this will enhance the quality and the variety of food distributed, too). The food has to be transported and distributed. It also has to be handed out to recipients with dignity - this means given out where human contact is fostered. For sure this should provide more work opportunities?
