90. Rather than pick it out of the garbage...
Rather than pick it out of the garbage, you should go talk to the manager of the store.

My grandmother used to do this back in the 50's raising a family of 9. She would go to the grocer and ask for all the broken bags of flour and sugar, and all the bad fruits and vegetables. Sometimes she had to pay for them but at greatly reduced prices.

If these folks are throwing these foods away anyway, if you speak nicely with the manager they may give you the food for free.
