Asda gives away trolleys full of free food to prevent it from going to waste

An Asda supermarket in Wales has been giving away trolleys of free food to prevent it from going to waste.

Shoppers at the store in Barry were offered bags of carrots, broccoli, sprouts and parsnips – all of which were on sale in the lead up to Christmas but did not get sold.

An Asda spokesperson told the on Saturday: “We didn‘t want to see the final bags of veg in our Barry store go to waste.

”So took the decision to give them away. We hope they were enjoyed.“

Locals and social media users were thrilled with the offer, and commended the store for ensuring the food didn‘t go to waste.

Twitter user and father-of-two Aled Jones posted: “Da iawn (very well) to Asda Barry for giving away free vegetables rather than throwing them away.

“Hope local horse / livestock owners get down to the store and help themselves.”

Another, Monsur Zaman, said: “Great to see Asda doing the right thing and not adding good food to the scrap heap.”

Asda said the scheme may have happened at other stores around Wales although it was at the individual shop’s discretion.
