    I know for a fact that there are hospitals and some restaurants, and other food establishments in america that- throw away good food- instead of giving it to people in need, such as the homeless, sick and infirm, and those in poor areas. When I ask about this I am told that- the governmental regulations forbid them to give it away to those in need because of impending legal problems which may arise. What a damn shame! I find myself helping to feed the -street people- on my own accord and resources. They also have told me their stories.
