Dumpster Dining; FREE food for ALL to enjoy!!!!
    #4083222 - 04/22/05 12:29 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I just got back from the grocery store. Actually, behind the grocery store. The dumpsters were plentifull this fine April evening. I came home with an array of vegetables, a bag of cookies, a variety of bagels, and a nice loaf of sunflower seed bread. And it was all straight out of the DUMPSTERS!!!!!  :cool:

I can't believe all the great shit they just throw away!!!! How completely wastefull!!!!

Oh well, it keeps me and many others well-fed :thumbup:!!!!

No. It tastes just great. There certainly is some food in the dumosters that is no good, but you simply take what is still in good shape, and there's usually plenty of that. I'm continually amazed at the things they throw out. One night we were out there when the employees came and with another load that had atleast 30 avacodoes in, most of which were in prime condition.

When I worked in a grocery store, food was thrown out after 3 days. Tons of bagels, cakes, bread, etc. all in perfectly fine condition and in their bags and shit. If I was strapped for cash I'd be rooting around for free 3 day old cookies.

Man's gotta eat.

Thank you for thesupport S2, I'm kinda surprised I'm the only one here who's done this.

I was skeptical when my roomate first told me about it, but I checked it out, and now I can say that I honestly eat healthier than I did before! Junk food is cheap, fruits and veggies are not!

It's not like you're picking half eaten sandwiches out of pools of grease and you gotta pick the maggots off. :shrug: A few of my friends did it a couple years ago, smoked with the kids who threw shit away and got tons of free food.

Thats fucked up they just throw that shit away. I do work w/ the hunger task force in the city here, and we have people who go around to all the grocery stores and pick up anything thats still good but that they're throwing away 'cause its old. Produce/Baked shit/meat.

I used to dumpster all the time. Baked goods are the best, muffins and bagles and kookies. sometimes you find good fruit and veggies. It's pretty easy to tell whats good and whats not. and when you're hungry, most of what you find (other than meat and dairy, of course) is going to be good. I used to score brownies out of the 7 11 dumpster alot too.


btw, I was homless with no job. It was'nt just cause I was cheap.

The bread dumpsters were packed with goodies tonight!!!!! More cookies than I could handle.

But I never find any dairy or meats...though I might be pretty hesitant about eating meat out of the dumpster.

I'm all about the veggies!!!! fry'm up with some soy sauce or terryaki sauce, make some rice and there you have a damn fine meal!!

yeah, the only dumpster meat I would touch was the individually wraped breakfast-lunch meals they keep under heatlights at gas stations and throw out in the evenings. They were good If you got them right after they trough them out. You could tell if they were still warm. I knew one market that kept there old doughnuts on racks in a metal box out behind the store, it looked like it was closed up, but you could turn the box from the wall and open it up and get all the doughnuts you want. Not exactley healthy, but I did'nt have a stove to cook any veggies on, either.

A little bit into the city the semi-famous bakery doesn't throw anything out. If you're down on your luck or in some deep shit you can just ask. They run out pretty quick tho.

I used to dumpster dive all of the time! Papa John's is a good diving spot. They put all of the pies that they don't sell in the trash and we come and harvest the still fresh goodies after they close. FreeLaws posted About this around Christmas of last year. Where the hell has she been?

I swung by Papa John's this evening around 8:00, no luck, but I guess it was a little early, I was about to check the dumpster behind a black angus, but some guy walked out the back door as I was biking up. He didn't look too friendly.

It's awesome how cool the employees at the grocery store act, they couldn't care less as long as we don't make a mess.

Well, they're getting paid jack shit and their managers are probably breathing down their necks all day, so why not relieve some stress and help your fellow man?
