61. Why don't these stores donate some of this extra to the food pantries?
the waste you are describing is horrific, especially when you consider how many go to bed hungry each night. Also, there is the land fill issue.

For expired items, there is probably some liability issues, but they could donate the 'scratch and dent' packaged food. As you point out, at stores with less picky clientele, that food is sold at a discount, but it is perfectly safe.
