U.K. Supermarket Store Gives Away Cartloads Of Unsold Holiday Produce

December 30, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
An Asda supermarket branch in Wales decided it didn’t want to waste the unsold produce accumulated over the holidays. It created a sensation in the Barry community as shopping carts full of leftover carrots, broccoli, parsnips, and brussels sprouts were given away free of charge to surprised and happy shoppers. Some of the food was collected for the homeless, charities, soup kitchens or owners of livestock. Store managers at other Asda outlets apparently were free to do the same thing at their own discretion. [Image Credit: © Aled Williams/Wales Online ]
