179. Some do, but I think the policies vary widely store to store.
In my old home town, the chain-that-won't-be-mentioned-by-the-OP was very good about donating, at least when asked. We fed a load of people with the out-of-date bakery, produce, and other goods. When arranging an activism conference, one of our challenges wasn't getting good stuff from them... but having enough people's freezers to store it between the days they were giving us stuff and the conference. Not only did everyone get fed over 1 1/2 days of conference, but a lot of folks who really needed it took plenty home.

I know in other cities, it's just the opposite. I wish I knew why. All it takes is for one store manager to give a rip, and the problem is solved.
