France becomes the first country to force all supermarkets to give unsold food to the needy

@grainloom @yogthos ooh, is this a new thing? I can't wait to see how this turns out. Hoping for the best.

@yogthos
Actually the law was passed but not its application. So no it doesn't apply. Sadly. Capitalism is apparently more important.

@yogthos I wonder how the stores like that. To my understanding unsold, near date, and out of date products can be returned to their warehouse or vendor for possible money back or some other small kickback.

@jordan31 the food is still wasted when they do that though, and this puts a cost on the waste.
