What a bunch of losers. I watched the video, can't these occupy losers find something better to do? The tomatoes looked fine. They could have given them to the Mexicans for salsa, their the ones who picked the damm things. And why weren't there there any Jiggers there?

How European of us. I didn't see any burkas in the crowd even though it was organized by a guy named Mohamed. What a waste of good food, the piglets would have loved some of them tomatoes!

Isn't there a law against wanton waste?

This is really stupid when people are starving around the world and we don't buy tomatos because they cost to much and a buch of morons are wasting the good food.

I say arrest the idiots for wanton waste.

Yes, knowingly waste food, sell tickets to waste the food and then the proceeds go to feed the hungry?

Sounds like the way Minneapolis is run.

"Yes, knowingly waste food..."
Not REALLY, drama queen.....
"The tomatoes we're using are overripe and past the date they can be sold to people," Mohamed explains. "They are going to be thrown away anyways, so the wholesalers agree to sell them to us instead."

Hey idiot, ask a homeless person if they will eat food past the date.
