Walmart insider says ‘heartbreaking’ amount of food dumped in trash – British Columbia – CBC News

A former worker at almost a dozen Walmart stores in the Vancouver area is speaking out about what he calls “disturbing” food waste at the big retailer.

Daniel Schoeler says on every shift at almost every store, he saw loads of what appeared to be perfectly good food dumped in the trash, even though Walmart says it only discards inedible food. “It’s heartbreaking when you go home at the end of the day, to see that much food get thrown out,” Schoeler told Go Public.

“They just toss it freely.”
