The city of Toronto faces two main issues: food waste and food insecurity.

While it may seem like there should be a simple solution, there isn’t. However, an intrepid group has taken the problem into their own hands with a creative solution; dumpster diving. Dumpster divers search for what others have thrown out. Often, grocery and retail stores discard perfectly good items based on arbitrary rules.

As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
