|I don't know what Freecycle postings yield in other areas of the country, but around here they are a HUGE score! Just thought I would share this in case it gives ideas to others.
I posted an ad last night and am already set up to clean out an elderly lady's freezer on Thursday, pick up some slightly freezer-burnt meat from another family's side of beef later tonight, and got hooked up with a hunter who said he will give me all his venison scrap and organ.
You have to be sensible, of course, and make sure you have a good feeling about the people. But I have scored A LOT of free dog food on Freecycle and never once had an issue with it. It's just normal folks who let a few steaks and whatnot sit in the freezer too long.
I take everything they offer and don't get picky about seasoned, cooked, etc. If it's something I can't feed, I just toss it (or give it away, in the case of chicken which Duke is allergic to). I figure, they are doing me a favor, so I'm not going to ask them to pick through their freezers.
Just thought I would share. Now is the time of year people are clearing out freezers for the upcoming Fall deer hunt.
