    Hello all!
    I am hosting a Food Waste Fiasco in DC this Tuesday at the National Mall. I'd love for you to come out for this peaceful demonstration against food waste! I have hosted 4 so far in Madison, Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland as I cycle across America and they have created a ton of awareness and blown people away about food waste.
    Please join!
    And I am in need of help with dumpster diving tonight and tomorrow. Does anyone with a car want to go with me? Or have suggestions of where to go in the DC area?
    I would love to have your help!
    Call me at[masked] or email me [masked]

    I agree with many of the members of this group. I think that the idea of this group is great hence the reason I joined. I have not really been able to find a time and place to participate yet. If exact dates, places and times were organized I would really like to participate. I live in Alexandria and would like to meet up somewhere in this area if possible. Dc is not out of the question if the meetup is not too far from the metro. Hope to meet some of you soon and see how this works :)

    Looking at the event "description", it appears someone just posted the question, "Just wondering ... does anyone ever do a capitol hill / DC trader Joe's whole foods dive?". I'm guessing one of the organizers turned the question into an event, possibly without the person who originally asked even being aware, and not assigning an event host. Does anyone have experience with dumpster diving, and want to create and lead an actual event?

    This was a shame. Sorry to everyone who drove a fair distance. I agree with Selethia and Daryl. A meeting place and same color shirt makes sense. Also, whoever the organizer is, if that person could be active on the Meetup wall and respond to posts/questions about the upcoming event that would be great :-)

    I attempted to send messages to folks but phone mal-functioned. A meeting place would be good but usually the organizer does that.

    Where the hell is everybody??? We gotta get better organized about this. So far I have read 3 post of people in the group that showed up and left I saw a couple of people that looked like they may have been waiting but just gave up. Next time lets have a group leader for starters; and agreed on spot like a bus stop for example. And maybe in the future we can do same Color t-shirts to cut out some of the confusion

    Is this event still at 7pm given the daylight? Also, is this in Capitol Hill or Silver Spring and where at the grocery store do we meet? Thanks!

    Would the dive actually be at 7? I thought dives were usually later, like around midnight, or at least well after the store closes.

      I'd like to know this answer as well!

    Hi all! Just joined the group and very excited! I plan to be at the dive 5/31 but want to make sure it is in Silver Spring and not Capitol Hill. The title says Capitol Hill but the address is Wayne Ave in Silver Spring. Just checking :-) I live in Silver Spring so that would be a great first dive! And sorry--I'm a novice-- but it's okay to dive in daylight?

    What time and place does this group meet? I would love to join but need to know the details :)

    I don't think there is much diving in D.C. proper. I know folks who have tried in the past and haven't found anything. Maybe the new TJ's might be worth trying but I have a feeling it will be a compactor and those are extremely rarely a good idea.

    The W.F. in SS is not really a great place at least last time I tried but the 3 TJs in the area in MD are just dandy most of the time. If anyone has a vehicle and is interested in going with me I am happy to take people out. Just shoot me a PM/Email. I know I cannot commit anything to this group because but if people are able I can try and fit some dives into my schedule.
