Dumpster Diving: Yea or Nay?
Back in colllege I loved to go dumpster diving. It was fun, it was dirty, it felt revolutionary and it always resulted in loads of free eats. We'd hit the alleys behind grocery stores and restaurants (mosty pizza places) and carry home days worth of meals. The dumpsters around the dorms at the end of the semester were especially fruitful. Kids would throw out EVERYTHING THEY HAD before heading home for break. Shoes, furniture, brand new razors; I even got a brand-new printer in the box, and of course, lots of food, mostly packaged grub.
Now that I'm a professional cook, I have little reason to dumpster dive anymore. But I still think about it sometimes. How about the rest of you? Have you tried living off the dregs of society? What do you think?
