16. This is fantastic. Here is my experience with corporate restaurants and throwing out food ...

When I was in high school, I used to work at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Each tray of chicken would hold 36 pieces of chicken, and our goal was to have less that a tray of chicken for each original & crispy at the end of the day.

Then we employees would split up the leftovers and take home.

One night we overestimated on the original and we had 4 trays left over (about 144 pieces).
We told our manager, that when this rare occurrence happens, we usually pack up the chicken and give it to the Catholic Carmelite Orphanage that was less than a mile away.

Our manager demanded that we throw away the chicken and that we will not be giving any chicken to anyone.
My co-worker/friend Jerry and I, were pi$$ed.

So on one of our dumpster runs, we took a chicken crate and lined it with aluminum foil and placed it next to the dumpster. We also took several chicken bucket containers and put them in our car.
Then when we took the trays of chicken to the dumpster we dumped it in the lined crate.

When we finished cleaning the store we put the crate in my car and drove to the park, where we took the chicken out of the crate and filled the chicken buckets with the chicken. Threw the crate away, drove to the orphanage and rang the door bell. When the nun answered we gave them the chicken buckets.

That was over 40 years ago, and I'll never forget the heartlessness of our manager, and what Jerry and I were able to do without our manager noticing.

To top this off, I remember Jerry's name for the good that we accomplished.
And for the life of me, I can't remember the managers name. Maybe for the better.
