Food wasted

Re: Dumpsters closed for business, Feb. 23 – 29

Only corporate logic can deduce that food is garbage.

Don’t the higher-ups ever think that food can go from retail for affluent customers, then to discounted 50%, and only after that does it become “garbage.”  Does a new car go from new to garbage without “used” in between?  True talent is needed to turn discounted 50% into a delicious, nutritious meal, especially for pensioners. One wonders if the higher-ups were left with no food and sat next to one of their locked bins — would they reconsider their policy when it concerns their own  stomachs?
