Newfound News Investigates: Expired Food Issued by Food Bank

In July we were informed about a family who attended a food bank in Carbonear of the food issued to families.

We were with them when they took their food from the food bank.

In the mix of food was food that was well past the expiry date and with the food combinations provided, it was nothing to make an actual meal from.

We reached out to the Community Food Sharing Association for comment and we were told to contact the food bank in question. We reached out to them by email on July 27th, and as of publishing time we have not received a response.

These photos show some of the expired food.

Do you donate to food banks? What do you think?
