It's not a steady souce, but food rescue can feed so many people. Just for the cost of moving the food from where it is to where it's needed.

Where I volunteer, we get good deal of the meal we serve on Fridays via Loving Spoonfuls, who get food rescued from places like Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

Funny they title this as "Ben & Jerry's owner" instead of "Unilever, owner of Ben & Jerry's" - it's almost like they don't want you to know Ben & Jerry's is made by some soulless corporation.

And yes, the product has changed (not as good) since they sold it.

Who are the people that stand in couples front of a display of religious stuff and talk to each other all day long and never seem to interact with anyone else? They are always at Forest Hills.

There are other people who work alone and actively try to hand out materials, those folks look like Jehovah Witnesses - or at least they remind me of the folks who come knocking on my door occasionally.

Under the new system, managers have been asked to categorize 6% of employees, or roughly 10,000 people, as low performers in terms of their impact for the business, according to people with knowledge of the system.

I've seen this system before - it's the one that if your group are all outstanding performers, some of them get dumped anyway, while in another group that's all underperforming, most of them keep their jobs.
