A lot of dumpsters are locked up in San Francisco because there have been foragers for decades. Some stores have even added compactors to counter divers. How dare people eat waste for free instead of support a wasteful system!
Here’s a few we’ve gotten from readers in the bay area:
House of Bagels on Geary and 13th
Shit tons of bagels just left out. We fed a house of five breakfast for a month by freezing the
Safeway dumpster is one block east of 15th St and Potrero.
SemiFreddie’s, 4242 Hollis Street in Emeryville. They dump day old bread in the morning.
Food Not Bombs serves at UN Plaza Mon-Thurs at 6:30pm-7:00pm and Fri at 16th and Market at 6:00pm.
