Surplus food distribution

In the news today was a feature on the launch of a Community Shop [click]

I like it
The redistribution of surplus supermarket waste, back to those who need it most. Discounted at 70%.
With so much food waste, it makes sense doesn't it?

I've heard of 'Freegans' [click] (those who 'scavenge' supermarket bins for food thrown out) but it seems a little tough to go through the bins like that.
Perhaps stores could have an hour.. 'Come buy/collect waste'.. schedule..
But that could get messy. This way.. (organized distribution) seems straightforward enough

It doesn't solve the root problem.. but it helps in the interim

Interesting though, sustainable.
