Food banks and supermarkets

I don't mind adverts because there's nothing wrong with telling people about your product and asking if they want to buy it.

I've always found it odd that supermarkets dispose of industrial quantities of edible food without giving it to people in need. On the podcast I reposted an interview with Alf The Freegan a man who lives entirely off food he finds in their bins. There's a whole subculture of "Freegans" like him.

The rising popularity of food banks in the UK is a terrible indictment of where we're at as an economy.

It's irritating to me that a number of major supermarkets have seen this as a good chance to carry out a promotional exercise while they still have to protect their rubbish with razor wire.
