As a matter of fact I have a lot of respect for the Panini Bread Company, also known as Saint Louis Bread Company. They have the most incredible varieties of breads and donate their day olds (still quite delicious and worthy) to food pantries and others. Too bad the big conglomerate "wal-mart" would prefer to throw their non saleables away, could you imagine how many families could be fed if it were donated? if in a case of soda one can sprung a leak they would throw them all away rather than wash them off.

That is an interesting question. I think that in California USA no one major food chain restaurant donates food. I have seen Burger King and McDonalds give the homeless food but it all depends on the managers.

i don't know any specific restaurant chain, but in Ottawa where I used to live, most of the bigger restaurants donated food daily and a truck would go around every morning to pick up left over soups, breads, meats and vegies that were prepared theday before then refrigerated overnight. There were many times that the street people ate better than many of ottawa's citizens. Sadly, ther are no really big restaurants here in Calgary for that to happen.

The grocery stores all donate day old bread, and fresh milk and margarine to the food bank here, though, and farmers bring in truckloads of grade b vegetables and fruit at harvest time
