  Food waste
by doolemma

A typical sight when there is a over supply of tomatoes. These have been gased and will be plowed back into the ground. It's seems its just to costly to pick them. The state of Florida use to fund a farm surplus for food to the poor, ($400,000.) but dropped it this year. It supplied millions of dollars worth of food to the needy.
