Romanian supermarkets should also donate food

Starting last week, French supermarkets are no longer allowed to throw away unpurchased food. Romania should follow this example, journalist Alessandra Stoicescu writes in the daily Jurnalul National: "7.1 million tonnes of food are thrown out each year in France, 89 million across the EU and 1.3 billion worldwide. Of course we consumers are the main culprits when it comes to throwing food away. But this French law can raise our awareness of the problem. It obliges supermarkets to sign contracts with the charities they intend to donate food to. ... I would like to convince Romanian parliamentarians of the benefits of such a law. One could speak of the 'Robin Hoods of Food' who change the lives of children who go to sleep on an empty stomach every night."
