As someone who works at a local community kitchen we benefit greatly from the generosity of our community. It would be a strong statement if Sobey's Canada pledged that all of its stores donate food that has reached its sell by date to Food Banks and/or other community organizations across Canada.
As well, up until recently products reaching their best before date were put on 50% off fast buy sales. This is extremely valuable for those who cannot afford full priced food and shop on a budget such as the working poor.
