Ali Milburn: From Dumpster Diver to a Life Mission on Food Waste Education and Distribution

“We all work really hard for our money, and when we throw our food away, we’re throwing that money away, too.” Ali Milburn

Day after day she returned to the dump, finding high-quality, fresh produce, day old bread, outdated dairy and other food items that had been discarded.

After a few months, Ali became overwhelmed with the amount of waste she encountered in the trash, so she set out to find a better use for all the food.
