    Don’t dumpster dive Smart Food Service Warehouse in Portland

    I can’t speak for their other locations but I met up with a friend of mine in Portland and their boyfriend works for Smart Food Service Warehouse in Portland. We were talking about food waste and he said they would pour bleach into the food they dumped in order to deter homeless people. He had...

    Nashville food bank/soup kitchen/dumpsters

    Hey y'all, I'm in "north" Nashville for a few weeks and am wondering where the good feeds/pantries/dumpsters are at. Dumpsters especially. Am discreet and will not blow up a spot. If you're down to show me, that's awesome, tell me about some places, that's awesome too.

    Dumpster Diving in Oz

    A mate of mine back home in Australia wrote a pretty rad article about diving (which isn't overly common in 'straya, or where I'm from at least). Thought some of y'all might dig it. https://andypaine.wordpress.com/2018/05/08/one-persons-trash-diving-into-dumpsters/

    Eating Trash (dumpstering phobias)

    So my background is a small town rural conservatism, where you don't get on welfare even if your starving, you resent handouts, etc. It took me forever to overcome my fear of eating out of the trash or dumpstering because of this cultural baggage. However, after I did overcome that fear it...

    NYC and sleeping rough

    I'm curious about various aspects of sleeping rough in NYC in winter. I'm not one for cold and roughing it in cities as big as NYC always puts me on edge, the two combined appears nightmarish. Has anyone here gone through it? Are there particular spots that are dry, warmer? Are there...

    When it's too fucking windy

    I don't know if this is common sense, but I just discovered it. I'm in Texas; it's alway always windy in Texas. Fucking hate it. I needed to stay up lest I miss an early morning appointment. Anyway I tried hiding from the wind by a dumpster and then by a wall. Aerodynamics was not my friend. I...
