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.

all the national chain business lock their dumpsters around here, but having friends who work in different eating establishments has let me become a 'semi-freegan' I suppose... I wouldn't recommend abusing friendships on a regular basis and you should definitely buy the person(s) something you know they like (6-pack beer, t-shirt, etc etc) ocassionally; Hell, my friends & I used to alternate to be the one to bring over food for weekend get-togethers.
ooops, when I wrote that I forgot to specify that the food I get does NOT goto the dumpster before I get it... :eek: :rolleyes: ;)
