Freegan Awesome!

Topic: Food Waste, Foraging, Gleaning, Dumpster Diving (Freeganing). In the U.S. alone, 133 billion pounds of food are wasted each year. It's no surprise that gleaning, foraging and freegan ideology are becoming a popular trend in the face of that number. Rodman and Gina join Freegan vlogger and co-creator of FallenFruit.org, Ethan Welte for a hands on demonstration of the good that can be done through gleaning local farmers markets for food banks, urban foraging for wild growing fruit and, in a segment that will test Rodman's (and the viewers) limits, Ethan takes Rodman dumpster diving to get an up close look at the U.S. food waste problem.
