  1. Nice idea and a sweet thought. Hopefully alot of places would do this. I think it is hard for a person to ask for a freebie, and it is easier to go through the dumpster and find your own.These people may not have anything left but their pride. If we could only make people realize that a helping hand from a friend is not begging and that there are people out there who really want to help and this person obviously does.There are also places that put their actual food products in a separate box in the dumpster so it is not mixed in with the actual gabage. Very nice idea. and I hope it catches on with the giver and the receiver. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS marj ion minnesota

  3. Many years ago I worked at a fast food restaurnant and was shocked by the food that was just tossed out. I wish it could have been given away.

    1. I know what you mean Sue, and why couldn't it be, sometimes we regulate too much...and loose common sense. That type of thing seems to be even worse nowdays.

  4. That is true Sue. They can only keep it for a certain length of time and then it cant be sold to the public. much of it is still very edible. That is why it can be placed in the garbage bins in separate areas for those who care to go looking for it, and many people do.It is called learning to play the game, Not the best, but if you are hungry I am sure it is wonderful. GOD BLESS THE HOMELESS. marj in minnesota

    1. It's a shame they can't have a policy that says after...x o'clock unused food will be placed here,all not collected by x o'clock will be discarded. Then folks wouldn't have to pull food after the dumpsters.

  6. I agree, it probably is hard for most to ask for a free meal. But the owner of this place might have made it a little easier. It is a most welcoming sign.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
