Voted Unanimously :: France law to give Unsold Supermarket food to the less Fortunate

On Wednesday, this law was voted unanimously by the French senate after a petition circulated from Courbevoie councillor Arash Derambarsh.  The Supermarkets in France  (400 sq. metres or larger) now have a law instilled where they are banned from throwing away or spoiling unsold food.. and instead... are REQUIRED to donate that food to charities and food banks.


If markets do not abide, they could incur fine costs up to 3750 Euros (= a little over $4k in U.S. dollars).  Something so simple as this could finally be the beginning to an end of 'world' hunger.  Hopefully, it will start a domino effect and restaurants, bakeries, etc. will follow suit.  
 Attention AMERICA.... YOUR turn!
