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.

Well, of course I would never do it as I am way too cautious of the food I eat and I am paranoid as all get outs that I will eat something bad. The only thing I might consider eating out of the stuff the people on the show talked about getting out was unopened cans of food that had been thrown out simply because they we're missing a label. Just look at it as mystery lunch! lol
