    Default $5 For A Cart of Bread Items.....

    I'm at the discount bread store & I had asked what they did w/ the bread they didn't sell, but is still edible. He told me that they usually sell it for $5 per HUGE cartfull to people for their animals & if I would like a cartfull to call daily to see if they had any. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for food safety...but if the breads are still edible...why waste it on animals when people could still benefit from it? If it doesn't have any mold on it and not too much past the expiration date, I think that it would be safe for people. I know that b/c of rules & regulations that they have to get rid of it this way.....its sad.

    They don't have to know that people are eating it. If you have a freezer and a couple friends with freezers and none of you are grossed out by it, you could split it all up and freeze it. I keep bread in the freezer and thaw either the night before, or microwave for a few seconds to thaw it. I put frozen bread in the toaster today and it came out fine.

    I usually go there & buy 24 loaves at a time & put them in the freezer...so I was thinking about calling them once the kids eat up the bread that we have. The carts are full of other stuff like tortillas,pastries,bagels etc.

    If I were you, I would be buying a cartful and putting it in the freezer.

    If I could get a deal like that, I would be sharing with family members. And I also would be sharing with our chickens.....but just the plain bread.

    When I was younger, our local Merita store did that as did Kerns. I remember my uncle used to go get the truck bed full for a little of nothing and put it in barrels. He would feed that to his hogs in lieu of hog feed.

    worked well, the hogs got good and fat.

    I don't think it's sad at all! My chickens love it! They like the extra treat!

    I always freeze bread. Think of all the things you could make with the bread. Bread pudding, stuffing, french toast, bread soup, bread lasagna, pizza, etc. Plus you have a large family so I doubt it would go to waste.
