Stop this waste

THE NEWS today was about a social supermarket in South Yorkshire stocked with food from the big supermarkets and food retailers that would have been sent to landfill or composted. It is specifically for those people on low wages or on benefits and the food is sold at about a third of the original price.
If it is a success another twenty could be opened all over the country. I think it is a wonderful idea, but one thought crossed my mind, and that was how much food over the years has already been sent to landfill. When there are so many people struggling to make ends meet how do the retailers sleep at night when food that could have eased the situation was put in the ground. Perhaps the Supermarkets could set aside an area in the store where this food could be sold at a reduced price benefitting both customer and retailer alike.
