I'm a vegetarian and I've never had a problem steering clear of meat while dumpstering. It might actually be smarter to avoid meat and dairy because you're more likely to get sick off of that than anything else.

Although it must be hard for vegans to avoid dairy/eggs entirely...half the dumpstering I do is in the afternoon for pastry after all the bakeries close.

I'm not a vegan but I wish I could find more vegan stuff in the dumpsters. Most of the stuff I find is not vegan and it's not friendly to my hormonal disorder either. Most of it is vegetarian though, this shit's really not as healthy as people like to think it is!

I traveled with a vegan and she could always find something to eat but never enough for a whole meal. She never complained, but she must have always been hungry.

Yeah I was in minneapolis for a while, and I made the mistake of dumpstering some poizza outside of this old pizza joint, and I got pretty sick. but after a few beers I felt like superman again!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
