There was an article on the internet today about the wasting of food by groceries. They showed pictures, too. Why do they do this? They could easily donate the food and receive a tax write off. Is it inconvenient? Are they too lazy? There are so many people who go hungry on a daily basis it seems beyond disdainful. I am sure that there are volunteers who would be willing to collect the unwanted food and pass it out to people in need. There should be more compassion for our fellow human beings. There have been articles on Facebook about restaurants that waste and others that give food to the homeless. In some of the videos people are made redundant for giving leftovers to homeless hungry individuals. Then, there are other videos that show owners and managers setting aside foods for hungry people. In America, more so than other countries, there is an incredible waste in individual’s homes. For families that do not have pets, the leftovers are tossed. I have always found that it is easier to use whatever you have available. For example, let’s say you roast a chicken. Once everyone has had their fill, what do you do with the remaining meat? You could make a chicken pot pie, chicken sandwiches the next day, soup, or pilaf. You could cook the bones to make broth. People don’t think, take the time or find it is easier to toss. It’s much healthier, less wasteful and more economical to utilize whatever leftovers you do have. If you can’t be bothered, pass it along to your pet or animals in your neighborhood. What do you do with your leftovers? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
