An English company specializing in selling food past its best-before date says it has seen its sales rise exponentially since the global economic downturn. Approved Food says its sales have shot up 10-fold, and business is so strong the online retailer has to shut down its Web site for two days a month to clear order backlogs,The Daily Telegraph reported Saturday. We have seen a significant rise in interest, probably due to the credit crunch and our low price, said company founder Dan...

Overstuff yourself on Turkey Day, but don't overstuff the refrigerator, which can cause food-borne illness, a U.S. dietitian advises. Brenda Jones of the Baylor Medical Center in Irving, Texas, says cool air needs to circulate in the refrigerate to keep food safe and ensure Thanksgiving leftovers eaten on Black Friday and after don't make anyone sick. A lack of understanding leads many to experience food-borne illnesses during the holidays, Jones said in a statement. Although most cases...

Food Revolt: I was recently discharged from Ward 109 at the City General after a stay of 12 days, the first eight of which I was not allowed solid food.

THERE'S NO BETTER WAY to usher in the fall than with a good festival. One of the coolest around Western Branch is the Fun-n- Food Fest at the Church of St. Therese, 4137 Portsmouth Blvd. I make the annual trek for good international eating, craft shopping and listening to local musicians. Mark your calendar for Friday and Saturday. You'll have fun playing games and eating good food of every kind, including delicious desserts at the French Cafe. I think my favorite food at this festival is...

Tim Lang, of City University, London, said a set of "omni standards" for labels could overcome public confusion over food.

By MORGAN, Jon HAVE you tried to buy a mincer lately? Know what a mincer is? Don't laugh. I would guess that half the people in New Zealand today have no idea that such a handy kitchen implement exists. A mincer is a metal contraption that you clamp on to your kitchen bench. You feed pieces of leftover meat in one end, all the while turning a handle, and they emerge out the other end as mince. Why would you need one if you can buy mince in the supermarket? Well, the key word in the...

By Al Lowe There are no hassles over paperwork or qualifiers for those applying to purchase food through the Angelfood Ministries program. "If you eat, you qualify," said Darlene Love, a church elder who takes orders for the national Christian program at Kerr Presbyterian in Penn Hills. "So many people don't know about the program." "I've heard people say, 'Let the poor have it.' But everybody can save through it," said Don Thomson, president of the council overseeing the Evangelical...

All the ingredients are there for a fun, warmly told story. Comfort Food...

COOKING with Prudence. Not the title of the latest recipe book to hit the shelves but the message yesterday from Gordon Brown to Britons, each of whom wastes on average GBP420 worth of food each year. That creates an annual food mountain weighing 4.1m tonnes. Taking greater care with the food we buy, so that we use it before we waste it, was one of the Prime Minister's themes as he left for the G8 summit in Japan. But prudence should be exercised not only in the kitchen. Mr Brown urged people...
