While the old adage tells us to waste not and want not, all too often surplus food ends up uneaten.

An impromptu family visit to a wading pool in a public park in Guelph, Ont. left an 8-year-old girl embarrassed and her parents angry when staff told her that, unlike her brothers, she could not be in the wading pool without a top.People are crying, "It's not about body-shaming."
