Lots of free food for the asking! Took my kids to a local farmers market. They grow and harvest their own food. I was hoping to get just a few ears of corn... The loading dock area has "dumpsters full!" of fresh picked "broken watermelons, corn that is a little crooked or broken, crushed squash...... Wow! I talked to the manager directly (after saw the basket of food for my family I was purchasing anyway ...) and the manager says "sure take all you want for your chickens" So I loaded the car and walked away with 3 cases of food for the flock. If you have a local market give this a try!
