Michelle O's Lunches Going to the Pigs

(Rio Rancho, New Mexico) Pigs, goats and chickens absolutely love Michelle Obama's school lunch program.
New Mexico’s Galloping Grace Youth Ranch is accepting fruits and vegetables thrown away by students at several elementary schools in the Rio Rancho area and collects some five tons per week.

“It’s really whatever they don’t eat coming off of their trays, so when they get up to the trash cans they will scrape it into one of our buckets that we pick up on a daily basis,” ranch CEO Max Wade tells KRQE.
Based upon a recent estimate, New York district students throw away 85 percent of their fruits and vegetables, making the pigs and other animals quite happy.

The kids have a better meal than I do, but the dummies don't or won't eat it.

We have a service that delivers meals for some people, almost no cost, but I've seen the frozen dinners, they don't look that good.

My system changed, I can't eat that processed stuff anymore, not as a standard daily meal.

Glad I clicked the link in the article and found the real problem.

"Everything from out-dated lettuce, bread and produce gets thrown away each day."

That's part of the problem right there, "best by dates", its meaningless!

I've seen the trach the soup kitchen set out, cases and cases of canned goods because the best by date was a day or two away.

That right there is tge worst human waste of food!

Those foods remain good long after those dates and not just canned goods.

Fresh milk, good a week to two weeks after the date if kept cold and not left out.

Fruit and vegetables, depending on what they are last a for a week or more.

Dryed pasta and cereal last more than a year or more.

And the canned food, that can last almost 10 years, depending on what it is and the cans are not damaged, dented and leaking or swollen.

The dates stamped on food are more a ploy to get people and stores to get rid or the outdated and buy more.

Its all B.S!
