Synopsis
The film follows director Jeremy Seifert and his friends as they dumpster dive behind several grocery stores in the Los Angeles area to demonstrate the massive amount of food that is wasted each year in America.

After showing that much of the food found in dumpsters is perfectly edible, Seifert confronts the managers of the stores to question why they don’t donate more of it to local food banks.
