Hey Dumpster Divers!
Announcing a new Meetup for Los Angeles Dumpster Diving Meetup Group!
What: Dumpster Ride #5
When: Saturday, January 23, 2010 8:30 PM
Central Park - Pasadena
E Del Mar Blvd and S Raymond Ave Across from Del Mar Metro Station
Pasadena, CA 91105
Join us for our fifth dumpster bike tour of Pasadena! It's a chance for exercise, food rescuing and fun. We will meet at the park, and ride to supermarket dumpsters, where we will gather the discarded goodies for personal redistribution.
This time we will have neither a meal nor a video screening and will only have two or three stops. The ride will be about 7 miles long, meeting and ending at Central Park in Pasadena, across from the Del Mar Metro Station.
We would appreciate a volunteer to drive a truck or car to gather excess food. Contact Grace or Eric to offer help.
Please bring panniers or a trailer on your bike, if possible. Otherwise, bring bags and/or a backpack to carry food home.
Thoughts on Dumpster Ride #4
from the blog "A Funky Freegan Journal"
:We scored a ton of great food. It was enough for the roughly twenty of us to each have our own selection of food, at least a plastic shopping bag each. Eric and I got the leftovers, as usual, which included a medium box of bananas and 6 or 7 dozen eggs. And we did have our own box of selections, too, of course. The "shopping" part at the end is one of my favorite aspects of group dumpster diving. It represents the sharing aspect of freeganism, as we divide the food evenly between us. I love how everyone involved is often quite humble about their preferences, offering their prizes to everyone before actually claiming them. I must admit that I become quite greedy at times for certain items. It's a learning experience.
