summary: Chinese New Year goodies which are not opened and expired are being donated to the Food Bank Charity which distributes them to the needy like the children's home, elderly care centers and family service centers. the unwanted goodies  will be given to farms to feel the animals.

I feel that this method of clearing away Chinese New Year goodies is very good. by donating to the needy, we can see this as doing a good deed helping these people.
I am sure that they would also be delighted when they receive these free goodies from us. Giving unwanted food to the animals can also prevent food wastage but I think the most important thing to prevent such cases is to not over buy the food especially during Chinese New Year. we tend to buy so much that we always leave them in our kitchen and would not  notice  even when they are expired.

  1. I agree with Audrey that donating Chinese goodies is a interesting way in which we can show our concern to the unfortunate people in Singapore, who could not afford to buy Chinese goodies to celebrate the festive season. This act of kindness kills two birds with one stone. Not only would the poor be able to savour CNY goodies, it prevents massive food wastage which has always been our concern. Thus, I fully support this idea of donating CNY goodies to the poor.
