DK: The supermarket that wants everyone to buy food waste

Aol.com: Residents of Copenhagen can cut their grocery bills by as much as half thanks to a new supermarket that opened in the city this week. WeFood, started by the nonprofit DanChurch Aid, gets all of its products—from dairy to meat to dry goods—from supermarket chains that would otherwise throw the food away.

The market, which was financed partially through a crowd-funding campaign, is working with two large Danish grocers as well as a number of smaller retails to stock its shelves. As is the case in the U.S. and elsewhere, foods are often pulled before they spoil or present any kind of food-safety risk.
