What happens to the bread that a bakery doesn't sell? Often, it is given away to homeless/poor people.

That used to be the case here, until a few years ago when new tax laws prohibited giving away stuff which should have been sold, or even selling it for less than its cost of production (anti-dumping law?). The media showed a baker who got a huge fine for giving away a few day-old rolls (he was a local hero for a short time). So perfectly edible bread was being thrown out

Only after a lot of protests did our Enlightened MPs pass a law allowing stale bread to be sold off for 1 grosz (~1/4 eurocent).

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
