On the way to the airport returning from Hawaii I was scarfing down a banana in the car. Zoe had another one. Then at the airport we had to throw out another banana and a beautiful avocado. We left some bread in the fridge at the apartment we rented. We threw away various styrofoam containers of leftovers. We brought home the granola bars. I feel like on almost any vacation I’ve taken, there ends up being leftover food you can’t bring home. (You’re not allowed to take fresh fruit or vegetables from Hawaii to the mainland). Shouldn’t there be some way to make use of them? Give them to a shelter or food pantry? Are there places where nonprofits could connect with travel-related organizations so you could drop off your food when you’re leaving town and it doesn’t go to waste? Just wondering.
