Yellow stickers

posted in: Poems 2024 | 0

After 7pm
I casually walk into the supermarket
I walk to the isle with shelves stacked with food with yellow stickers
Items of food that are near their best before date or reduced for clearance
It was an opportunity to save money
It has become a necessity
For me
I make meals at what I can buy, freeze or cook
For others it is about reducing waste, be creative with selective food items
For me it is simply a choice between eat what I can afford or go hungry.
For this I am grateful.
