    Seems to be what NY thinks is 'helpful'. Anyone agree?

    At site you can see that there are lots of 'kitchens' that cannot feed the hungry, by law they should throw away foods with 'transfats?' Hey I avoid them, I'm assuming most do. On the other hand, 'transfat friend chicken or no food?' I'd take that chicken.

    I have the solution, tell the homeless you will be throwing away this food at a certain time in a very clean bin-table and then look the other way.

    If the homeless pick through the trash-table so be it.

    I wonder how many trans fats there are in a can of dog food.

    Food pantries have also gotten in trouble for keeping non-perishables beyond their expiration date. And unfortunately, grocery stores would rather throw out decent food than donate it because someone might get sick and sue. It's time for these charitable organizations to be exempt from lawsuits. How about if they have a sign "ALL FOOD IS IN "AS IS" CONDITION - EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

    This is what over-regulation is all about. And people are willing to let the nanny state intrude even further. Defies common sense.

    That's probably what they did. I volunteer at a veterans shelter, and two supermarkets in town will call the on-site manager to let him know when he can drive the truck over to pick up yesterday's fresh produce and baked goods. During the holidays, like now, they even notify shelters and missions of their overstocked frozen turkeys which they don't have room to warehouse.

    So you guys are suggesting you should be able to tell the state of NY what laws they can create in tehir own state?

    Do you hate state rights as well as the federal government?
