Instead of a food truck, this Kickstarter campaign is to fund a food documentary. Spoils: Extraordinary Harvest
explores the not-so-glamorous world of dumpster diving, which, before turning your nose up, you should know is "a practice as old as agriculture." The film follows three New Yorkers on their quest for discarded food, depicting the vast amount that is wasted every day. Yes, we know there's a Portlandia
(Brooklandia?) skit in there somewhere, but it's well worth suspending your cynicism to view the trailer.
