    Called our local supermarket and asked if they had any old greens they would be getting rid of, and they said sure. Got 2 huge boxes, including at least 9 full heads of lettuce and 2 heads of cabbage. They threw in 2 large bags of carrots , a bag of shredded cole slaw makings, sliced apples, parsley and more I haven't even seen yet [​IMG] The chickens, ducks, geese and guineas are having a field day [​IMG]

    Hope you get as lucky as I did. There was even more lettuce in the other box, some peas, Cauliflower and more. I still can't get over how much we were given.

    Good for you!!!! I have tried all my grocery stores and was told no. It is a liability for them in case I eat the overripe food, I said I would sign something stating it was not for human consumption but they still cant do it.

    I am surprised and very happy that they would give it to you. [​IMG]

    Our coop gives away the "non food" part of the vegetables (like carrot tops and such), but not sure if they do overripe stuff too. Never used it, for my three girls I will have plenty myself [​IMG]

    They wouldn't allow us to get veggies or fruit, but the bread place lets you take old french bread and loaves if you come by at the end of the business day. THEY LOVE IT
