 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

Are you out West? I used to go to Safeways when I lived out there. None in the Chicago area, but I think our equivalent--Jewel--is owned by Safeway. They have compactors. = (

By the way, how do you dive like a pro? Any tips? Strategies?

I'm not a pro at all. Often times we just use a stool and lean in and harvest what we can that way. No one seasoned at it ever showed us how they do it. I'm still kinda shy about it after 3 months into it.

I wish I could get free dived bananas! Everyone else on Youtue seems to anyway. Believe me when I tell you there is an abundance of grapes, OG greens, all sorts of fruits, carrots, always lots of mushrooms, bell peppers, cauliflower...you name it! 'Cept bananas. = (

However, I frequently come across the next best alternative in urban living: 3 local produce stores have a reduced items shelf and there are always plenty of crazy cheap nanas. I can usually get about 6-9 bunches for about $5, so that's not so bad!

There are some particular stores around here (and unfortunately have compactors) whom I know definitely toss them as soon as they show their first brown spots. Insanity that they chuck UNRIPE bananas??? That's kinda like me going to an apple farm in June when apples are still greenlings, twisting and tugging them off their green stems, throwing them on the ground and walking away. Except that it doesn't involve a bunch of exploited workers and countries and diesel transportation and banana gas chambers in the medium...

just watched DIVE! 

great film. very informative, even if some might find it a tad pretentious, and kind of disgusting w/ all the meat. 

i'm definitely checking out my local trader joe's and von's dumpsters tonight!! i'm in claremont, in LA county, and i'm certain there are bountiful dumpsters close by. 

right now i'm visiting friends in Santa Barbara... they say the dumpsters at trader joe's, whole foods, and the other chains in the area are all locked at night :( what a sorry waste
