Sadly after getting produce that the grocery store throws away (inspired by you), I was told it is against their policy to donate it as someone who received free produce complained their animals got sick. I haven't tried again.
Yeah, sadly there is always someone that wrecks it for others... Lots of stores have similar policies for fear of being sued, especially the chain stores, ma/pa (especially ethnic owned) are best, from my experience...
If it doesn't offend you, there is always freeganism (aka dumpster diving) it's becoming quite popular in some areas, with dedicated communities and groups that actually get together and do it as a team...Edited by MeepBeep - 12/4/15 at 12:47am
