I get produce trimmings and old produce from our local grocer. I asked the produce manager. I've had no success with the big named places. You may have a hard time with milk. You could ask around at smaller places that are locally owned. I don't even know what they do with old milk...

I have had ZERO luck getting cast-offs. A lot of the stores have new policies and will not allow old stuff to be given out.

It's a liability issue. You couldn't guarantee that a person wouldn't eat it and get sick. Then of course lawsuit city.

Imp- If your up to it, some stores turn a blind eye to dumpster diving. If you don't make a mess.

that is what I think too. Even the fast food joints have to throw food away that is an hour or so old . . .think of what food pantry's or soup kitchens could do with some of that stuff. . .shame.
