Here is a link to the info on the guy you mentioned.
He seems like a very interesting guy.
I think that kind of recycling is a good idea. When I was little we were poor enough that we would regularly pick up furniture left for the garbage
collectors, and my mothers friend had an uncle that ran a pig farm, and we would often go through the food destined to become slop. It isnt as bad as
it sounds. All those wilted cabbages and cracked eggs from the grocery store end up in places like that, and they are still edible.
It got us through a lot of hard times.
Restaurants also waste a LOT of perfectly good food. It is against many restaurant policies, but I convinced a manager to let me take the leftover
food to the dumpster with a wink and a nod, and I would give it to the homeless people that hung around out there. We never spoke of it, but between
the two of us, we helped quite a few hungry people. It was destined for the trash anyway, it wasnt stealing, it was simply violating their rule
against making use of it rather than wasting it.
Nowdays, there are companies that recognize that their waste can feed people and they willingly donate it. (Einstein Bagels is one, yea for them!)
