As a dunkin' closer, I can say that the amount of food wasted is absolutely retarded. We throw out roughly 4-5 dozen bagels, about 15 croissants, 300 munchkins (donut holes), and anywhere from 4 to 10 dozen donuts in a nightly basis. we cant even take the **** home/ give it away technically, as it is some kind of liability.

Had the same **** happen at 7-11 i used to give away donuts every night and they made us throw away all the sandwiches and other foods that expired that day instead of giving it away. I'd do it anyways though, we were a franchise owned building and i was the only non paki working there. Most nights i was the only guy doing anything while the bosses friend sat outside and smoked. For a while no one cared what we did with the food but corporate hq came in and told us we, nor the customers could have any of the food that was being thrown out. I quit not long after but i would give the food to people who looked like they needed it and regulars, free refills to regulars and free coffee to like 50% of people with the amount of stuff wasted no one even noticed.

No dude, i work at a grocery store in the produce department. They tell us to throw away anything that looks bad at all. I was throwing out almost nothing in the beginning but they got mad at me. If there is literally one spot on an apple we can't sell it. We throw it all out.

I took it all home regardless of what my boss said. He didn't mind. So many donuts, and everything. I'd walk out with dozen's boxes and bagels boxes. Everything. I'd give half to a donation shelter in the morning and keep the other half for myself. Oh yeah.

If the waste is that substantial on a nightly basis, why not just make less food during the day? If you can predict average amounts of waste, why make more than you can expect to sell?

The sad fact is that it depends on your state regulations. Many states don't allow non-individually labeled or "expired" food to be donated. I guarantee that even the mighty panera bread in New York throws away food because the regulations forbid donating it. Ohio is now the same.
I work for two charities, and the food we need to throw away or refuse is staggering. To top that, some states have nutritional requirements on donated food, so donuts wouldn't fit the bill anyway.
Statistics say that most of the people on this site don't vote, but **** like this is the result of high-regulation, nanny-state policy - liberal ****. And before you red thumb, I'm NOT a conservative - facts are just facts. Volunteer at your local shelter, donate money, and vote libertarian.

I worked at my college and the sandwhich counter i was at produced a full bin of "compost" after every night, which is about 80lbs(most is fresh vegetables and roasted beef/chicken). and thats just at one counter.. the college has 6 major dinning commons and each common has about 13 counters.. thats literally tons of food wasted everyday. Broke my heart when I have to dump out a full tray of bacon and full tray of roasted chicken meat..

still havent tried that yet, theres one near me house but its next to a texas roadhouse and a sonics so we always go to those. We'll get to it eventually. Also, thats why big chains are so mechanical, if it was a mom and pop restaurant, they would just take it home and refridgerate it or something. we lack the personal touch.

By all means, never go there. it's not dirty or anything, just the food is bland or extremely salty.
I work at a very small Thai restaurant and we rarely have anything to throw away in the first place. I think more places need to cook to order and there would be less wasted food.

the problem is that cook to order takes a considerable amount longer to prepare and hand out than it does to just prepare it all in the mourning, though i do think that any left overs would be best served by donating it to a place to feed the homeless or at least let the employees take it home.

I should probably specify, I didn't mean prep everything that goes into it, like sauces and vegetables, right when the order comes, just so many restaurants cook everything and shove it out already made buffet bars and heat lamps, when nobody eats them, they are forced to throw them away.

I work at a Panera Bread, and we donate almost all of our baked goods at closing time. Usually us closers will take just a few pastries or a loaf of bread home, because we're pretty much all college students. And we're not allowed to hand food out to customers at the end of the night, mostly because that would be abused, and also because I don't like to reward people for staying late and making my closing difficult. It really grinds my gears when people ask me to slip them some pastries ~15 minutes before we close "because it's all going to be thrown out anyway." I just tell them that it's actually being donated to charity and they get a really guilty look on their faces.

There are some nights where the donation volunteers don't show up though, and I feel horrible having to throw out all of the food, which ends up being around 7-8 dozen bagels, at least 40-50 pastries, and about 25 bread loaves. Sometimes I'll take a few large boxes of food with me on those nights though, so that I can hand them out to homeless people on my way home. Otherwise I just feel guilty about having tossed out that much food.

Well normally what happens is that the donations collectors will come in once we close to gather all the food, and my coworkers and I will take like 2 pastries each. On nights when the collectors don't show up though, we usually take more food home with us, and myself and some of my coworkers will usually try to bring what we can to some homeless people.

That would be a gluten allergy or something like that. Or maybe a crippling phobia of food with holes in it.

Not to be a jerk and continue this, but it would be worth finding out what exactly you're allergic to. I only say this because I'm in the same boat - for years I thought I was lactose intolerant, but recently I found out that it's most likely a gluten intolerance. I've been avoiding delicious cheese for years for an imagined dietary problem - the horror!

But in all seriousness, check it out. It could also be a dairy allergy, where you're allergic to casein, or some other completely different intolerance or allergy.

If you're only intolerant, but not allergic... there are some pills with lactase(the enzyme that digests lactose) that you can buy and then you can have some milk products.

It's not too cheap, but there are some ocassions where you really need to or want to eat something with milk in it.

Nutira is the product name in Spain.
