I'm all for this, but I believe that dumpster diving is not encouraged at all at places like this. They don't want bums and homeless scavenging around their property.
How are you getting this food? I"m sure nobody is giving it to you or stacking it neatly for you to pick up. It must be thrown away in the trash and these places do not like people going through their garbage. There may be laws about this now - I'm not sure.
I wish I could participate in this. That perfectly good food is thrown away makes me ill. But I don't think it's as easy as it seems. Perhaps others here have a more up to date perspective on this.

As an aside, years ago you could get out of date daily products free if you went to the warehouses. They stopped however because of some legal difficulties. I believe they are used for hog feed now.

I managed at a restaurant supply company for years. We donated all of our foods with damaged packaging to the local food shelf. There is really no reason to be throwing good food away.
