Why not just give them to people who need them instead of throwing them away. Kinda stupid not gonna lie.

I read a few weeks ago that a mom in Africa boiled stones to convince her kids that she was cooking, whilst waiting for them to fall asleep as there was no food. Imagine what the potatoes or the milk thays thrown away in USA can do for these people.
Our planet has the potential to sustain humans, even more humans, but not their mis management, not their greed.
All these problems are man made, if you think about it.

There's such a surplus of potatoes, and the restuarant throws so much French fries away, people STOP ordering fries on the side and then not eating them

just donate them to the poor. What a dumb choice

Idiots, as bad as potatoes stink when rotting. You could generate natural gas and electricity from it. Ethanol alcohol from potatoes is some powerful shit! How about this for an idea? Make alcohol from potatoes that can be used as disinfectant in hand sanitizer. To fight the root of the problem!

I find it so dumb most these food company's and others as well as the government be like oh we have to much and no one's buying throw it away why not bag the damn food you don't sell and hand it out for FREE to starving people instead of wasting it I know it's hard cause you need the money so badly you rather throw food away then give it away. So tired of the world being oh we care but instead of helping others you waste things/food

You ask why not give to the starving. They did what they could do themselves, its in the video, but the problem is they are in real financial trouble rn and they cant afford to spend money on shipping. Its our government, beloved celebrities, social figures, millionaires that can afford it, who should take action and organize some delivery across US or to Africa. Farmers are devastated enough already.

Whats sad news. Even knowing there's a lot of hungry people all over the world, the farms can't do the hole logistic to ship so much potatoes, they need help to do all this. The opposite of that, they would be broken. They're doing what they can to make sure they won't loss so many for the next season.

I'm almost certain there was another alternative to the idea of burying 1. Million potatoes in a ditch.

I love how they’re nice people that refuse to believe they would dump this many potatoes when if they would just watch and read around, they’d realize that it takes less money to dump them than to ship them all around the world. No one is gonna package and ship that many potatoes for free and guarantee that they’ll be fresh by the time they reach their destination. It just doesn’t work that way.

Why can't they just give it out to jobless and homeless. But capitalism can't allow them to be human, they prefer to destroy it than giving out for free.

Donate to homeless shelters with kitchens or even jails. I guess making sure worms have full belly’s is more important.

What a terrible clickbait video. You pad the video and bury the point. It’s a logistics problem. The cost of shipping millions of pounds of potatoes add up to be very expensive. They even cost money to throw away. They gave away 77,000 pounds to the community but no one can take more without incurring shipping costs.
