GINTA – Food should never be wasted


SINCE MOVING to Kamloops five years ago I continue to be amazed at the abundance of summer bounty materialized as fresh produce.

I will never reconcile to the presence of many ‘carpets’ of mostly crushed fruit, air full of ripe fragrance that serves no other purpose at that point but to attract bugs.

Some of these trees grow in green spaces rather than on someone’s property, while others lean outside of a property, fruit hanging heavy and inviting.

Should you find yourself in need of an impromptu summer treat, all you need to do is reach out and grab one.

Moral dilemma ensues: should you?
