Food - you can't even give it away

Throwing food away is one of my biggest pet hates, but do you know how hard it is to give food away?
At work, by the end of the day we often have plenty of leftovers, especially after catering for an event. After one event recently, it was decided that we should give the food away rather than throw it away. Good idea. However, this proved more difficult than you would think. Several calls were made to local charities and the like, but the offer was turned down apparently due to concerns over food hygiene/law. Thankfully and eventually the Salvation Army came up trumps and accepted our offerings.

Who would refuse free apple pie?
It's shame that it's so hard to give food away, especially in a time when we bin literally billions of pounds worth every year.

It does seem wrong, doesn't it?
