France has started forcing supermarkets to donate food instead of throwing it away.
Something we should be doing here, instead they ship it off to the pig farms.
This article (see link below) is well worth a read.
There are far too many rules, PC police around the corner and still in this day and age, we are starving, our friends are going hungry, our children are starving. They going with out the basic stables to keep on living a healthy life.
Yet, the supermarkets, the restaurants, the fast food outlets etc ... continually throw away perfectly good, healthy food.
To me, this is totally unacceptable. We are throwing away more that we are consuming, both in the supermarkets etc ... and our homes.
I remember when baking our own bread, cakes etc .. was cheaper than buying, not so much now.
Buying healthy food is far more expensive than buying fast food and/or unhealthy options. WHY?
I know that I went slightly off course with the last two sentences, but this whole topic really gets my blood boiling, the waste, the expense - EVERYTHING.
Our friends, our families, our neighbourhoods are hungry - let's do something.
I’m feeling fairly upset and violated as my family and I have only been in our new rental home for less than a month. I went in our downstairs bedroom (spare room) this morning to open the windows and heard something fall only to realise someone has tried to break into our home. Obviously they’re not a great burglar but still. We’re located on Brashier Circle so if you see anything suspicious please report it. They used these with no luck of getting in. I’ve made a report to the police and have installed extra locks on all our windows. So good luck to the prick that did this I hope your hands fall off asshole!
Fun fact… it’s 537 steps up Baldwin Street in Dunedin – that means you’d have to walk up it almost 19 times to get 10,000 steps! Thanks to Hannah, our legendary Community Fundraising Coordinator for stepping up to the challenge.
We still have plenty of New Zealand Red Cross Cups to give away. All you need to do is sign up to Red Cross Journey, be one of the first 100 participants to raise $100 and we’ll send you a KeepCup!
Red Cross Journey is our annual fundraising step challenge - with a difference. Walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 days and learn about the journey of someone involved with Red Cross while raising funds to help people in need.
