Now that the “freegan” movement has caught on, Dumpster-diving for leftover food is trendy. Though we still can’t bring ourselves to chow down on a half-eaten pork chop or the contents of a dented-to-hell can of veggies (can you say botulism?), we love hunger-relief organization Food Not Bombs’ brilliant plan of turning grocery-store discards into no-cost meals for the community. Sample some of the freebie cuisine at the Food Not Bombs/No Mas Muertes Benefit. The event will also feature a vegan bake sale, a raffle, and live entertainment by Michelle Blades, The Haymarket Squares, and Andrew Jackson Jihad.
