Check out this documentary which takes dumpster diving to a whole new level
"Inspired by a curiosity about our country's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles' supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an inspiring documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action. "
I've had friends go on similar adventures (think trash bags full of day old Krispy Kreme distributed to the homeless) around LA and SF and have heard about the massive amount of food waste created by bakeries and grocery store that could be better served to help with the hunger problems in our urban cities.
