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.
