browns bay in the media
Last week a reporter from our local North Shore Times came to my home to interview me on matters regarding freganing & dumpster diving.
Between 30-40% of the food produced in NZ is wasted at some point on the food chain.
The reporter asked me if a family of four could live from the food disposed of in local dumpsters - "easily" I replied - they would probably even thrive on all the fruit & vegetables disposed of because of a slight blemish or (horror!) odd shape.
