Friendships while dumpstering

 Hey Nice to see this group!! I dumpster for nearly everything that I eat, but I almost always end up going on my own. My old friends don't want to do it and I have not been able to find many others…Continue

Los Angeles Dive spots?

Most grocery stores I've been to have a pretty secure and closed off dumpster. For any of those LA divers out there where are the stores that are accessible, or if there is any advice on how to do…Continue

Any suggestions for Vancouver Area? It must be quite hip on this idea. I would like to get in contact with some people who are like minded :)

having probs here in Brisbane but once in Cairns I'll try & make an initial freegan map for Oz, would only be for fruit/leaves seekers, don't wanna promote something unhealthy even if it does not commodity those poisons, only found one decent bin here in Bris, most woolworths r locked, found an aldi, will try Coles & there r a decent amount of indie groceries in inner city where I'm buying most of my fruit, will try the bins from tonite on, anybody had exp here in Bris?

Hey everybody Sapote here, I can message you the locales of the best bins in Perth,Adelaide,Melbourne,Albury,Sydney, remember Woolworths is almost always a score, if there is an abundance stay clear of sprayed watermelon/berries/apples, anyway I'm in Sydney now & there are some great bins around, hit me up if u wanna go forage sometime, cheers Sapote'

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?

Comment by HolisticHealthDetective on May 25, 2012 at 8:31am

Very cool Alison! I hope you get a food rescue co-op rockin' and rollin' out there!

Comment by HolisticHealthDetective on May 19, 2012 at 9:02am

Dylan--very nice video. Thanks for the inspiration. Also, nice dinner!

Any other nice finds recently?

Comment by HolisticHealthDetective on May 19, 2012 at 9:00am

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!
