It might taste sour though.

What a great idea! I'm definitely in - I have mad knife skills! For the food, of course. Unless someone tried to get out of hand. Then all bets are off!

... in a world where I feel so small I can't stop thinking big!

RE: Mobile BnG???
So....I can't seem to get this crazy idear outta my little head! Wonder if it might actually be a possibility on a smaller scale at a select few venues?Whatcha'll think!? Worth digging into further??? I'm a former social worker-turned event coordinator with experience in fundraising (most recently for an orphanage in Kenya), so I'm not afraid to ask businesses to donate items and/or provide sponsorship dollars to offset the start-up costs, etc. The charity could be either global or local depending on what is near and dear to BnB's hearts, and maybe we could even find some cool merch to auction off, etc.

Am I crazy to think this might actually work?? Anyone else interested in brainstorming with me a bit??? I'm aware of the fact that this would be a major undertaking with a lot of crazy logistics involved, BUT, nothing worthwhile is ever easy, right???

Tx for indulging me on this guys!!!

Well, just my opinion, but I know that organizations that alleviate hunger would be my preferred group for each city.
The other would be local homeless shelters.

RE: Mobile BnG???
Did you catch the show on Food Network last Sunday: it was Flay & Simon vs. Burrel & Guarnaschelli. They had to make 2 dishes each fro 100 people... from food that was going to be thrown away. It was amazing how much perfectly good food is being thrown out by groceries, restaurants, bakeries, butchers, farmers.... everywhere they went they scored perfectly good food. Either it wasn't "perfect" or they couldn't use it (like an end of prosciutto).

Maybe we could check in each town - if we do this - at groceries and so forth for perfectly good food to take advantage of. Just a thought....

Debskis! I like this very much. Reaching out and extending the much needed hand in this hurting world. I wonder how this would start? Of course travel expenses (sponsors?), personnel (volunteers?), food and other need things (donations?).

This is something obviously I know nothing about, but I'm curious to see where it might go. I am brain storming.


Bubba's Bus for the Busted? nah scratch that. thinking...

Don't talk smack about Total!!

That's awesome Skythe! I've always been disturbed by the amount of food that gets thrown out in our society. Even in my own household - it makes me crazy when my kids don't finish what they've been given and I have to toss it, or when something gets pushed to the back of the fridge, only to be found months later in the form of some mutant science experiment gone wrong.

I know there are strict rules as to what restaurants/stores are allowed to donate to charities, but it seems as though we could do more with the leftovers to help people in need!

Good "food for thought" Scythe...I'll start compiling a "Feasibility Study" of sorts with some of these great ideas!
