My household has been getting almost all it’s groceries from Trader Joe’s for many years now. Even when we also shopped other markets TJ’s was a major presence in our home life.
The other day I saw this sign by the restrooms at Trader Joes’ in Westlake, Daly City. I’m sure this policy is not news but it did make me feel good about at least one of the places where I shop.
The sign reads:
“What Happens to Our Products When They’re About to Expire?
-Every Trader Joe’s works with a nonprofit to pick up nearly all bagged, canned, & fresh food for needy families in the area.
-Close to expiring flowers are given to volunteer hospice care”
