Reader salutes LWC/Somerset students for generosity

Wonders why bakery goods at retail outlets thrown away instead of being used to feed needy
Comments re article 52769 LWC Somerset students help meet areas needs

Peg Schaeffer writes:
I was (a store) yesterday at the reduced bakery cart at the rear of the store. A woman from the bakery department started to wheel the cart away and I asked her what they do with the left over baked goods. She said they just throw it away. What a shame! Why can't this food be donated to a soup kitchen that could feed the needy? Congratulations to the LWC students for their generosity. - Peg Schaeffer
Thanks, Peg Schaeffer, as always, for finding a practical, direct solution to problems. Interestingly, this brings to mind one local restaurant, which takes perfectly good meals which are not sold to the Adair County Regional Jail Class D, facility. However, in fairness to stores who might be the victim of manipulation of the over supply, in the instance cited, the owner has complete control over the production, sales, and disposition of the surplus food. That might not be the case for chain stores. -EW
