Free' supermarket opens to cut food waste

2018-08-16 08:06
Tucked away in an inner city suburb of Melbourne is a grocery store with a difference - there are no prices. "The idea was to make a difference in the food waste crisis," says Inconvenience Store Project Coordinator Astrid Ryan. The Inconvenience store is a concept brought to life by not-for-profit restaurant, Lentil as Anything, which has three vegan restaurants in Melbourne and one in Sydney. The supermarket is inside the restaurant and its philosophy is pretty simple; the food is donated and the customers can pay as much or as little as they want or are able to. The store is about providing produce that people can take home. Credit: The Associated Press
