We checked with another market, and unfortunately, their policy is to throw it all out, in the dumpster. Luckily, the produce folks put their toss-outs in a box, usually on top. Today, this is what Rusty and Nick brought home for our animals.

|collard greens, black raspberries, bananas, romaine lettuce, cabbage, and pears|
|loaves of bread - no mold|
|Best if PURCHASED by date.|
|these bananas are perfect for baking, but today's went to the pigs and goats|

|Earl loves magical dumpsters|

But what if I was hungry? What if I could not feed my children? Doesn't this food look edible? Wouldn't the hungry be grateful for something to eat? I would. I am not saying the poor should eat out of dumpsters, I am saying I would. I think all of this food "waste" should be re-distributed. I don't know how, but I do know that we are a country that wastes food. Me included.
One dumpster, one day.
