I really hate waste. This was just one night at one grocery store in one town. I cringe when I think of how much isn't getting rescued from dumpster but instead feeds flies in landfills. I've been diving for a month or so and we've not had a need to go to the grocery store since.
I don't find anything legally wrong with diving. I know in Australia it's illegal, but in the US it's mainly an issue of trespassing. If anything, throwing away so much perfect food should be illegal. The majority of the food we get is thrown away for small aesthetic imperfections. One egg in a dozen is cracked so it's tossed. One lemon/apple/orange/strawberry in a pack looks a little discolored so it's tossed.
I ask you to consider dumpster diving. Also, if you have Netflix, watch "Dive!"
