YESTERDAY A CAR WITH........

a trailer stopped outside the block I live in.
I was standing outside, talking to Mum, as a sweet woman got out of the car and asked if we wanted some free vegetables and bread.

They came from an organization called, “Five bread and two fish”, and they collect groceries from supermarkets, food has not been sold that day – not old, just groceries that the supermarket has for spare.

They then drive around and give it away. I got what is on the picture and Mum got a bag full with stuff she liked.



They didn`t want money for the food, but we gave them 50kr for gas.

This is such a good idea! I wish supermarkets did this in the UK. Everything unsold just goes to waste here when it could help so many people who need it!

It is, I`ve never seen them before.
Before the stores wasted a lot of food, but now there are special stores that get food that the stores can`t sell, and people that deliver like this.
It should be a normal thing everywhere!!

That is AMAZING! I love both the idea - here too in Canada grocery stores just throw away everything they don't sell - and I love that it came to you just when you needed it. Karma is working for you - just when finances got tight something good came your way without you asking for it. ♥

It is a great idea, and I wish it would be world wide.
I got 8 meals out of the stuff I got, with just adding a few things that I had in my kitchen.
And the food was great ♥

It just takes one person to start, and then get the word out that it can be done. Time to start advertising that here and maybe we can make it happen.

That's fantastic!!! I'm so happy for you. ♥
