Fighting waste and feeding those in need during Covid-19

As thousands of Americans go hungry, farmers are forced to throw away the produce they can't sell to shuttered restaurants. The Farm to Food Banks project bridges that gap.

    This could only happen in America. The richest country in the world where half the people are starving.

    If lockdown is a decision taken for humanity, what would you like to say after seeing this reality? Perhaps you have nothing to do with these poor families. Are volunteers miraculous? Is there a contract between the corona virus and the volunteers? Does anyone have evidence to prove that the corona virus infection will not spread through volunteers? Is there testing of volunteers all over the world? If volunteers and police can go out, why ban poor families? You are saying that, by staying in the house, the firepower of the corona virus is destroyed, then volunteers, nurses, police should also stay in the house. Do all of them want to die after being infected by Corona Virus? If volunteers , police and nurse are doing this for humanity, then why are more than half of the world's population poor? If it is helping us for humanity, can anyone tell me who is doing the massacres in Syria? If it is helping us, why a quarter of the world's population is forced to live in a refugee camp? Want to ask all of you, do you want to depend on the food given by the volunteers? Are three-fourths of the world's population waiting to live in a refugee camp? Are three-fourths of the world's population preparing to become beggars? If not, try to convince me why these volunteers and police are out? Are all these gimmicks being adopted to exploit us? At the time of lockdown, were the governments of all countries not aware of these poor families? I am sharing some videos with you, so that all of you can explain to me that lockdown is for the exploitation of poor families, or for our benefit. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1922230777908892&id=100003659665942 https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1922403497891620&id=100003659665942 https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1922394507892519&id=100003659665942 https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=650990672360982&id=355665009819 Looking at this video You have nothing to do with their trouble, but in the name of lockdown, atrocities are happening all over the world. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1867005730098064&id=100003659665942

    What a wasteful country we are . Give as much as you can to people in need .I'm sure people in your area would come get food before it's just trashed. We are the most wasteful country on the whole planet.

    In Thailand, we have tried to help each other by setting up some online produce sale through several non-profit organizations.

    Plain and simple, the economy needs to open back up.

    There’s no excuse to throw away good food. Just leave it by the side of the road with a sing, if you’re that senseless.

    “Forced”, more like another example of people making the easiest decision in a time when adjustments should be explored. It’s these decisions that also lead to asking for a bailout then calling it a subsidy to comfort them during their “forced” decision.
