Food Found on My Block

Canned potatoes freak me out. Who's too lazy to cook regular old potatoes? But when a can of potatoes magically appears on the sidewalk in front of my apartment, than I'm really spooked.

I find random food on my street all the time and I never know what I should do about it. Last week, it was a bag of hamburger buns and an unopened pack of tortillas. Two weeks ago, there was a pizza dough and a bag of grated mozzarella cheese.

And let's not forget the entire frozen turkey I found last November. Still frozen. Poor little turkey. I dragged it to the corner and gave it to the guy who sells fruit because I didn't want it to go to waste. How do you drop an entire frozen turkey and not notice???

Sure sounds like someone wants to help anyone who might need food, but wants it to remain undercover. Maybe there is a local shelter or food bank. :)

When I worked near skid row, there was this one electrical box on the street that I would always find veggies sitting on. There was once a beautiful eggplant, a half dozen yellow onions, cabbage... they all looked very edible. Somehow I could never bring myself to pick them up. One of those random things we'd talk about in the lunch room.
