I never thought I’d be the kind of person to go dumpster diving, but here I am. It all started when I read an article about food waste and how so much perfectly good food ends up in the trash. I was shocked and appalled. Surely there must be something we can do to reduce food waste and help those in need. That’s when I decided to go dumpster diving at my local grocery store. And you know what? It was pretty eye-opening. I found a lot of perfectly good food that had been thrown away simply because it was past the “sell-by” date or because it wasn’t cosmetically perfect.
In this blog post, I’m going to share my experience of dumpster diving at Albertsons and what I found. I hope that this will inspire you to think twice about food waste and maybe even give dumpster diving a try yourself!
