Discussion Question: What should be done with expired food?

Choose a position:
Position A) This kind of food shouldn’t be distributed. It’s too dangerous, and might cause diseases. It’s best for it to go to a landfill.
Position B) The government should set up a program to collect this food, and compensate stores for their costs.
Position C) Someone should set up a gleaning organization, like in the article below.
Position D) Stores should make agreements with food banks to come pick up unwanted food, or they should donate it before it’s actually expired.
Position E) Stores should have a display area for free food, with a sign that “buy at your own risk, we have no legal responsibility for you eating this” and maybe a special mark so that people can’t return the food as spoiled and get their money back.
Position F) ___. _________________________.
