Anybody here a freegan? I saw caught an episode of the Tyra Banks show while sitting in the lobby of my doctor's office yesterday. It was about "freegans" as in people who dumpster dive for their food. They go to bakeries and get thrown out bread, thrown out produce from grocery stores and what not. Now I'm not talking about homeless people. These people are very intelligent, have homes, family, regular Joe's, ya know. They say they have never gotten sick from dumpster diving because they know what they are doing. They know what to eat and what not to eat.

I found this very interesting. Not for me of course, but I was wondering if any members of the forum got their food this way or knows someone who does. Would like to hear about some experience.

It's a great way to get hepatitis a-z not to mention a load of other permanent and horrible diseases. Stay out of dumpsers and leave the trash eating to the homeless.
Being homeless is tough. Toronto is a hard place to be homeless. The winters are really tough and the downtown core is very hard on street kids. I hope things were not as bad in 1971 as they are today.
I've got a feeling that it's a lot worse now. The 1970's was pre AIDS and pre Crack Cocaine. I'm glad you made it out. I see kids aged 20 and under dying on the streets from a mix of both. Glad you made it out.
