I don’t think Trussell Trust foodbanks will accept out of date food.

Yes but I cannot deliver so this is a better option for me :+1:

Yes, well, some people would still be happy to use the dried/non fresh items, those especially with best before rather than use by dates. I know I do and would, with these items, IF they were to my liking/useful to me, but they are not so hope they may be useful to others. Agreed, possibly Food Banks etc would not like to pass them on for fear of lawsuits maybe? I must find out sometime. Anyway, if anyone can use them they will let me know. If not, they will be disposed of in a few days.

Yeah I agree. It’s a shame to throw away food, especially when it’s only just passed a BBE date.

I suspect during the Covid-19 panic phase, people will have stockpiled food that they won’t get around to eating within it’s BBE. Would be a disaster for all this food to go to waste.

I am a “sniff and see” and use common sense person when it comes to food. Yes, some items it depends on how it has been kept, whether it is fresh, dried etc. but obviously some things you do not want to take a chance on, and do not go (too far) beyond “the date”, if at all, but it has been well documentated lately that use-by or best before dates can be extended sometimes. A lot of the date-thing is to cover asses :smile:

‘Olio’ is an app designed for the purpose - seems quite good to me

Oh yes, I did download that actually, but forgot I had it. I’ll take a look. Thanks for reminding me Beige :+1:
While on the subject of non wastage of food - there is also an app you can get where you can find out about businesses near you that are selling food cheaper
Too Good To Go :blush:
