Tossin’ Fries

I’m sitting in a movie–Into the Wildthis weekend trying to relax and take my mind off food waste. Since the movie was about a guy who ultimately starves in the Alaskan wilderness, I wasn’t expecting to see any squandering of food (except the debacle where he fails to cure the meat of the moose he kills, which I remembered from the great book).

Then the topic reared its ugly head. As the main character is working at a Burger King to fund his Alaska expedition, the camera pans to a sign by the fry hopper that reads: “It’s okay to waste fries.” What’s that all about? Anyone have any idea? Any former BK workers know if it’s legit or not?
