A supermarket is looking for charities to which they could donate surplus food.

The manager of Sainsbury’s in Hall Lane, Chingford, hopes to link up with a local organisation which would benefit from the food that is not sold, but which is still fine to eat.

Jason Roberts said: “Donating our surplus food is a great way of supporting local charities and also reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.

“Very often at the end of each day there is perfectly good food left over that has reached its display-by date, but is still within the use-by date.

“Where this happens we would rather give this food to charities for free than see it go to waste.”

Sainsbury’s hopes charities which house or look after people could benefit from these products, including milk, fruit, bread and vegetables.

Any interested organisations should contact the store on 8529 1204.

Maybe they could give it to the homeless and the hungry or the people who spent all their money in the bookies on a particular day and did not buy food for the week?

But true. People do get their priorities very wrong, including the mindless idiots who waste their days in betting shops and then beg for .50p outside. Probably for beer or cigarettes?

We do not all wear Cranberry Tinted Spectacles and wander around in some kind of Utopian World. There are people who squander their hand outs on luxuries then claim to rely on food banks when if you put your mind to it, can eat like a king by shopping wisely at Tesco and Lidl, with reduced items always available.

I read today that Chris Railings is abolishing access to Sky TV in Prisons.

I have never had Sky TV and would not really want to give Murdoch the money but what on Earth are we rewarding Crooks with such luxury?

If people learnt how to cook whilst on Jobseekers Allowance instead of languishing in betting shops, they will learn how to produce tasty nourishing meals for pennies.

The same people who moan about not being able to feed their family will not think twice about going to a Burger King and feeding their kids Horse meat contaminated Burger.

I have been to several halal Butchers in and around The Borough and found chicken on sale whole for £2.00, sometimes three for a fiver! Some people will go and get a Bargain Bucket of chicken covered in spices and pop full of auger for about twenty quid.

All about trying a bit harder and accepting responsibility.

However you look at this story the facts of it are that a major corporation are showing sense in donating food, rather than wasting, to those less fortunate. But some need to sour the good note of this story with with their poisonous slant on matters.

I have read stories in the media previously where another corporate chain prosecuted hungry people from taking the same food stuffs (at the end of their use by date) from their bins. I don't condone theft, but hungry people resort to desperate measures. It is good to see such a corporation using good sense for a change.

As I said "poisonous!"

I'm the last person that could be accused of wearing cranberry specs, and I fully condemn those that play the benefits system and have never worked. I unfortunately help to support those people with my taxes. But not everyone on benefits is there by choice . If you hadn't noticed there is a recession. Thousands of people have lost their jobs, through no fault of their own. Their circumstances have changed unexpectedly and are fighting to keep their homes and families together.

I think you are the one that wears cranberry tinted specs Cornbeefur. Your ivory tower keeps you above what other people less fortunate have to go through day to day. I hope you never have experience that kind of life. You may just be forced to eat your words.

Anyway back to the point of this story. I say well done Sainsburys.

Yes it is good to see them donating it and it is the policy by some Chains not to give out the left overs and near out of date stuff as they can leave themselves open to repercussions, suing and so on.

I know that some Large Sandwich Shops like Prets send all their extras to central points for the Homeless up the West End.

Waste is bad and if people put their mind to it they can eat healthy. The take away industry has boomed in recent years as well as obesity.

I cannot understand how some people regularly waste money on things like pizza, delivered to door. Nothing to making your own or getting one you can heat up yourself for a fraction of the price.

There are an abundance of fresh vegetables available down Walthamstow Market, sold in bowls and so on for pennies.

When I was a child I remember seeing elderly people picking up dropped spuds and veg that had fallen off the barrows out of the gutter but I do not see that kind of desperation now. Peoples idea of poverty is not being able to buy a takeaway when they want or having Sky TV and holidays, expectations are much higher

When you look at the prices in some restaurants and compare what it would cost to make at home there is a vast difference and at least when you cook at home you know who has handled it.

It is common to resort to ad hominem attacks on cornbeefur on here. Sure, he rambles, but a lot of what he says, albeit provocatively, is worth thinking about.

You may think he is an imbecile, but I suspect the opposite. He could take many of the contributors on here apart if was not busy poking fun at them and getting a rise.

It is interesting how times change, and not always for the better.

When my father was a boy, in the 1920s, his mother had been widowed with 6 children. He was sent to the butchers late on a Saturday afternoon with a shilling to buy whatever meat he could for the family. Whereas Sainsbury can keep foods fresh for days or weeks, in the 1920s butchers had very limited means of meat preservation. As a result any stock would be sold cheaply Saturday so it did not go off before it could be sold, probably mid week.

My father told me that sometimes there would be little cheap meat left but other times the family would get top cuts for the shilling.

I thought readers might be interested in this historical perspective.

The 'Heat or Eat' project in Walthamstow could use the food I'm sure.

This is a scheme for people who are on low incomes and who have to choose to either put their heating on or eat. And yes, there are many, many people here in this situation. Not everyone wastes the little money they get on takeaways, pizzas, betting shops but many do face the choice of keeping warm or eating.

This is the reality for many people here so stop projecting your own prejudices and assumptions.

The idea of supermarkets donating leftover food to the needy should not be a point for discussion but should be put into force immediately. There are many charities, churches, night shelters who would welcome receiving any excess food - the Salvation Army in Forest Road would be one. Please do not talk about it, do it!

Uncoordinated volunteering is a big problem with charitable ventures and what is needed is an organised set up to ensure that any such donations are stock rotated, properly stored and maintained and not contaminated.

This is one reason why some big businesses rather dispose of their stock as waste or insist on a disclaimer.

Some people are always ready to use any good will as a vehicle to sue.

It is not as easy as you claim to just give it out. Who takes the responsibility ultimately if someone falls ill because a product has not been stored at the right temperature?

And in the case of Cornbeefur his offensiveness is deliberate in it's offensiveness in that it is targetted at individuals by direct naming of them.

Very different than "Someone or other" as you well know.

The person responsible for most "Ad hominem" attacks on here is Cornbeefur. You seem to have a particularly myopic view of his comments. I have only ever seen you comment like the above on this site. Your willingness to comment when he is being insulting is so far conspicuous by its absence.

Dear Cornbeefur, we fall into the trap of modern, non-active thinking. Any subject can be argued out of existence if given enough time. The points that you make are relevant but not insurmountable. We tend to look for obstacles this day and age and appear fearful of our own shadows. Where there is a need, then a positive approach should be taken rather than negativity. The historical aspect of UKIP-local is as relevant today as it was in the 1920s. The only difference is that they had the courage to take the problem on board and try to alleviate it. What a pity that we seem unable to do this in 2013 without endless questions and doubt.

Many 'food banks' have been set up in the past few years. If there's one locally (I couldn't find one with a quick search) the Salvation Army may know about that too.
