Seemingly everywhere you look these days, there's a big focus on where your consumables come from: "Eat local." "Drink local." "Shop local."
But one Washington, D.C., man is taking that much further. His ingredients are sourced locally: He's a dumpster diver.
William Reid, a graduate student in film and electronic media at American University, hasn't bought food from a store since 2014, he told The Huffington Post.
Since then, he says, he's spent $5.50 on groceries. For the rest of his meals, he scavenges ingredients from supermarket dumpsters.
You might think that'd be a tough way to stay sustained, but consider this: Reid says finding food became "too easy" ... so he's gone vegan.
