    It sems to me that distance doesn't matter. Coupons could be mailed.

    Is anyone talking to the produce section of their supermarket to get the spoiled vegs and fruit? You can get the stuff free or very cheap, cut off the bad, and have a lot of good feed. I found it easy to get them to part with it once they knew you weren't going to eat it yourself.

    Quote:I tried at my local Food Lion grocery. All meat, and bakery items go to a homeless shelter. All prepackaged bread was picked up by the distributor and the fruits and veggies were thrown away! I asked about the fruits and veggies, even offered to buy them but the store manager refused. What a waste! [​IMG]

    Yes, that is a waste! It looks like to me that it would not matter if you were going to feed your chickens with it. Non chicken people just dont' get it! [​IMG]

    Did you ever stop to think that maybe the grocers are afraid of being sued. I used to work in a grocery store. And they were not allowed to give any of this stuff away because of the liability factor. People just create their only problems.
