Fact of the matter is (after the main issue of cost of requiring a business to take on this kind of endeavor) the reason so much food is thrown out is
not only because of regulations, health, and safety. As a customer, you expect a higher quality from restraunts than from our own homes. I don't
wear gloves to prepare my food at home, my family eats leftovers, and maybe even sometimes something might fall on the floor and we use the 5 second
rule. Imagine your/mine/the average person's response when a restraunt tries to feed them leftovers! Try serving someone a lukewarm piece of
chicken or a hamburger that's been sitting out half an hour. People are the reason businesses don't donate as much as they should. Through
lawsuits and lack of patronage to businesses who dare serve foods after they have cooled.
