If you shop at Aldi, you know their fruits and vegetables are mostly pre-packaged, so when one piece of fruit turned moldy, they throw away the whole package, and it is not unusual to find dozens of packages of oranges, apples, peppers, green beans, etc. being thrown into the dumpster.
Meanwhile, we hear about how some people don't have enough to eat, even in the US. They could have donated them to local food pantry, homeless shelter, food bank. I am sure these places will be happy to take them, sort them, give them away to people in need. But in stead, they are just being tossed into the dumpster.
I suppose they figure if they give away food, less people will be buying them, it will be less profit for them? I refuse to buy from such a wasteful company, and I urge all of you out there to do the same.
