I get more than I need, I can give away, trade, or even barter with the extras. I will not turn you away if you cannot trade or barter, I care MOST about good food finding a good home!Continue

Does anyone know where can one buy fresh dates in bulk in your area?Continue
How wonderfull you are doing a good job!
About donating. For me it's easy, I know that many people who 'live" of their diving, this makes them eat many meat as well. They normally can't afford or would not buy meat in the shop but now they eat it because they found it and otherwise it's going to "waste". I don't give anyone this stuff I don't even bring it home..In the past we gave it to the dog but then she started puking everytime she had meat from dive so now that's over :)
But things like bread, oil, alcohol and cookies(pastry) I would bring home and if not eaten by my bf I would sertainly donate it..if it's not too nasty.
great inquiry tania, in my opinion, you should keep giving your non-LFRV finds to the pantry. you won't be changing anyone's eating habits by not donating, and in the meantime you can rest assured that you aren't creating any extra demand (since it comes from the waste anyways!).
i'd love to hear some rhetoric from the other side of the issue though.
I didn't get picts of last night's dive, but I thought it deserved a mention. = )
Seems 8 was a good number:
*8 champagne mangos
*8 pints of strawberries
*8 organic bananas
*8 minutes of dive time (well, I don't know if that's true..sounded cool though!)
We also got a 1/2 pint of blueberries which our little girl decided wasn't share-worthy.
And I rescued 2 large chocolate birthday cakes and about 9 large coffee cakes which I dropped off at the pantry today. Sometimes I wonder at my activism of donating food I not only would never eat but I don't think anyone should. Any thoughts?
Hey Alison, I didn't think to ask--what food did you find from your dives while out with the Occupy folks?
Very cool Alison! I hope you get a food rescue co-op rockin' and rollin' out there!
Dylan--very nice video. Thanks for the inspiration. Also, nice dinner!
Any other nice finds recently?
Hey, I'd like to send a big welcome out to all of you newcomers who have recently joined the Divers group! I'm so thrilled that more and more people are recognizing the human need to rescue food from an otherwise terrible fate.
Since there are so many of us from different parts of the globe, this is really great news. That means we can keep the movement growing and spreading out, and increase awareness and education about food waste.
Also, for any folks recently coming here, I'd love to hear your personal story and what's up in your diving wold. = )
May All Be Fed!
Nice video Dylan!
kept hearing about everyone's dives and seeing such great results, and on my first try got great results. i made a video/song about it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-KU45wiPWo
I DO DO DO DO want to meet more divers! I have been asking around all over the place and there are very few people who are interested from what I see.
Thanks for the props! I am working on finding a shelter/ pantry that will take some of this fruit. Of course, I guess I'd have to clear it with the manager at Stanley's. I think I need to prepare some legal paperwork for him to look over, so he knows that he won't get sued.
