Walmart Shuts Down Creating Food Deserts

I remember in class watching a youtube clip about Michelle Obama’s food desert program, along with a clip interviewing people about how it felt like living near a food desert, and I thought to myself how generous it was for her to start this program, especially with the health of the future generation in mind.

And now some Walmart stores are shut down causing the situation of food deserts to worsen. The government should have a policy regarding leftover food in the supermarkets or in stores, instead of throwing perfectly fine produce, they should give them to families in desperate need, like single parent families or think of alternative ways to use this perfectly fine leftover food, like distributing them to soup kitchens.

How would you propose the government should do with the perfectly fine leftover food from restaurants and supermarkets?
