168. Thanks for this information.
I'm reading through this thread and keep on thinking that I thought stores had started donating lightly damaged packages of food and so on to Second Harvest and the like.

Where I used to live in Kansas, at the end of the day, as they were getting to close, my local Panera (a bakery, soup, and sandwich chain) would bundle up all of the unsold baked goods and give them to the local food bank people that showed up right at closing time. I was always so pleased to see that.

And, quite frankly, it hardly matters that times are tougher now than before. There are always hungry people out there, for whatever reason. Perfectly good food should not be thrown away.
