Marlene’s Market and Deli
2951 S 38th St

“I used to work in produce at Marlene’s. Out back they have several organic food waste bins, some with good stuff. Also, if you go in and ask someone in the produce dept. if there’s anything they can give rather than throw away they’ll usually say “yes.” However, don’t call and ask for stuff. The management is as lame as the employees are cool.”
