The reality is heartbreaking. It's 12 a.m. and a big supermarket store is throwing away tenths of drinkable yougurts because the expiration date marks the next they as the last one for consumption. If you drive for 10 minutes, you'll encounter a neighborhood of families who can only afford to buy a bottle of milk per week as a luxury.
This situation is repeated with different refrigerated products due to a well-intended norm to prevent and control illness and lawsuits.
The problem appears when the food that's been thrown away is still edible and could represent a big healthy meal for a kid.
The proposal is to use a low cost / insulated cooler that doesn't break the Cold Chain from the store's fridge to the table. Something you can store at the back of your car or carry on the bus. This way, the neighborhood can asign volunteers to deliver the soon to be expired food to a community center where it will be consumed within the next hour.
The challenge is to make is compliant with the store's policies to protect both the store, the delivery person and the final benificiary.
