Full agreement with red oaks...  They made it so they most likely like that dish.
Plus... they can clean the dish on their time. ;)

The dish should leave with its owner, empty or not. If it is something popular with someone else then put some in their dish. Leftovers can very often be divided somewhat between the non cookers as well, bachelors, widowers or older people who don't cook as much. I won't throw out food so I am eating turkey every day now. I really like turkey but by the time I get this bird done I won't want any for a while.

Reminds me of the bi monthly miracle that happens at my church.

    We have a potluck at the church about twice a month. I usually fix a ham and potato casserole or a meatloaf or something. everyone brings a dish. everyone eats. Leftovers get divvied up and everyone take some home. without fail, I wind up taking home more than I brought.  ;)

   David...I bet if you got into your freezers, you would find enough freezer burned or otherwise inedible stuff to toss out that could find room to store all the leftovers. That way when the same thing happens next year, you can get into your freezers and purge all the stuff you made room for this year.  ;)
What is this leisure time of which you speak?

5quarter, yep…..you are probably right.  :D  I wish they made a freezer with the door on the front and back.  :o
It would make it a whole lot easier to take inventory.  :)
I'm thinking......

This is an enormous global problem. As much as 2 billion tons of food is wasted worldwide while nearly 100 million people are undernourished. From production, through distribution, retail and end consumer use the waste multiplies to the point that an estimated 50% of food in the U alone is lost.
 If you're interested, here is a summary report.

You do not have to go very far to find need.  It very well might be just down the road or even a neighbor or a family member. 

We have some FF members right here that could use a helping hand at times.

There is a large local group that turns food otherwise wasted into 6 million meals a year.Volunteer processed and dehydrated and distributed overseas.I'm sure there are many similar groups across the country.
There are several other groups that feed local needs.
