Question of the Week.....
I've decided to make Thursdays my "Question of the Week" day because I always have questions and am always interested in people's answers.
This Week's Question: If you were given the wrong leftovers from a restaurant would you eat it?
Last week at my food pantry dinner, the subject of sharing food with others came up, but the discussion went one step further.
One person recounted her recent visit to a local restaurant for lunch. She had a fish sandwich, but only had 1/2 of it and asked her waiter to wrap it for her. The next day she went to have the leftovers, but when she opened the container finds a fresh chicken salad -- obviously another patron's take-out order.
While she got a fresh salad, the take-out person got a 1/2 eaten fish sandwich.
If you were that person would you eat the leftovers?
Would you eat them if starving and no time to get anything else?
If a Freegan, would you eat the leftover if someone tossed it in the trash that day?
