    How about Starbucks pay a percentage of the tax they skim of the British tax people into the charity.

    I won't buy the cheap food there on principle.

    My local Morrisons in store resturant is doing a similar thing with their cooked meals and puddings. I went there one evening to save cooking effort and had to ask why my bill was so cheap and why the pudding was free.

    Somehow I think the waste from the supermarket industry is a bigger problem than a few dried out snacks at Starbucks.

    This is starting to sound like Benji's all over again (anyone remember 99p sandwiches after 3pm?). Now, what happened to that chain?

    Moneysaving expert! Free lazy advertising for Starbucks! That's nice! independents and many other chains do this up and down the country. Why single out Starbucks to promote?

    I wasn't aware that others do this, I assume they'll be many other readers the same. Unless it's advertised people won't know.

    More than 350 of Starbucks' 800-odd UK stores are offering food at half-price which would otherwise be thrown out – and all the money raised by selling these items will be donated to Action Against Hunger, a charity that supports malnourished children.

    Reduced items included in the scheme, which started on 30 August, are marked with '50% off food, 100% to charity
