Rob Greenfield is crossing the country to show

what grocery stores throw away each day as

people go to bed hungry, diving dumpsters

to demonstrate all of the food America throws away

I was a floral designer in a large grocery store

while I was recovering from cancer treatment

They said I had to throw away all flowers that

were “expired” on the package. There were 100’s

of bouquets to throw away weekly. I began taking

some to my car and giving them away to ‘strangers”

I got caught by a grouchy woman one snowy day. I quit.
