My name is Eric and I am new to Bellingham within the past couple of weeks. I am interested in freeganism (aka dumpster diving). I don't know the policies of the stores around town, but I know that down south towards Seattle there is a lot of produce, nuts, whatever that goes to waste because it passes the "sell by" date; I think it is the policy of most chain grocery stores to toss the food out rather than pass it on to someone in need. I have never actually "taken the dive" so to speak and when I was telling a Seattleite friend that I was interested he suggested having someone to show me the ropes (mainly to get over the gross-out factor, and the fact that it is illegal), is there anyone who would be willing to team up? Or maybe there is someone else on the board like me who is interested who would like to come with; I would feel more comfortable going if I had someone to come along, even fellow rookie freegans. Let me know.
