Organic market! Nothing in garbages, but when it's open you can ask for vegetables and fruits. Sometimes you can have something.

United States, Austin 03.04.2015 ArsiRC
Texas French Bread - This place has some of the best bread in Austin and they frequently give it away around close. It's best to call ahead since there are some nights that they regularly give it to specific organizations. There is a large quantity of be prepared.

Centre Commercial Belle Epine: Opportunities for tabling, especially in the entrance where Flunch and McDonald's are opposite each other. (Last checked: November 2011)

Show up at 6:55 at JJ Beans coffee-house for a free cup of coffee – bring you own cup or thermos.

Australia, Melbourne 03.04.2015 ArsiRC
Pie Face: My backpacker mates have told me that if you ask if they need to get rid of any pies (usually after 2am) they will often give them to you for free. Not sure if they still do this, or which franchise they were successful at, but worth a try. There's a really friendly pommy guy at the Flinders St store late nights, perhaps try asking him.

Hotels often host conferences where food is served. I know from attending conferences that although they serve food, most of it is not eaten. Go to hotels, like this one here (the Marriott on Wolf Road, a good choice) and get a schedule of the events that are going on. Attend the ones that are free (this can be fun) or just attend the conference right after the meal or snack has been served and ask either conference organizers or hotel staff if you can keep the excess. I find that organizers are very recept…

Veggie Heaven: Primarily vegan cuisine, this asian fusion restaurant prides itself on healthy meals and bringing light to unjust prosecutions of Falun Gong practitioners by Chinese Communist Regime.

Rio Rita Lounge: All Vegan, local establishment has an East Austin vibe but keeps true to the cause by preparing delicious meals and distributing left overs to those who come by after closing. Mon-Fri. 9:00 am - 2:00 am, Sat-Sun. 11:00 am - 2:00 am

United States, Guilderland 03.04.2015 ArsiRC
The best thing to do to get a free meal is to a) befriend a bus boy or waitress, armed with a good piece of Tupperware they can make you a meal out of just the waste they collect from tables or b) visit restaurants 5 minutes or so before they close for the evening owners and staff are often more than willing to give you whatever they have left over from the day. This works especially well at fast food place and food courts within malls. Crossgates Mall closes at 9:30, so at 9:35pm you can go to any fast foo…

France, Saint-Denis 03.04.2015 ArsiRC
Université Paris 8 (Saint-Denis): Another good tabling experience where in the restaurant building (location is approximate) the trays are taken and put on a conveyer belt that moves so slowly you can help yourself to people's leftovers when no-one is watching! Rossignol found and enjoyed lots of pizza, potatoes, olives, salads and fruit - and that was only in 10 minutes! Also look out for conferences that have free food and coffee provided! (Last checked: November 2011)
