Rejected petition Ban supermarkets from destroying unsold food

Statistics from the WRAP - As many as 8.4 million families in the UK struggle to put food on the table, and yet 7.30 million tones of food waste ends up in landfills each year. Ban supermarkets from throwing away or destroying unsold food, instead donate it to charities and food banks.
