"Minu Pauline, owner of the Pappadavada restaurant, in Kochi, southern India, was moved to combat both food waste and hunger after seeing people scavanging waste food from bins."

I've read recently that

 

 

France has become the first country in the world to ban supermakets from throwing away or destroying unsold food, forcing them instead to donate it to charities and food banks.

I think it's great!

"The Polish parliament is currently drafting a law which aims to prevent local retailers from trashing unsold food which remains fit for consumption. Under the plan, the owners of retail outlets fitted with a total surface of more than 250 square metres are to be required to donate such food to charity organisations, with intentional discards punishable by financial penalties."

ps. Forcing business owners/customers to do something, is completely different from what I showed in OP, where somebody voluntary wanted to do it, her own (better) way..

Cities should be "flood" by refrigerators where people could put their unused food they don't need, so others could take it for free, and put their own..
