    Default Food Auctions

    Has anyone here ever tried a food auction? We have them in our local area, and it can sometimes be worthwhile to check one out. I will go to AuctionZip.com and search for food auctions. Then I will check out the listing if it has one. Usually, in my area, its paper products, frozen food and frozen meats. The food is not expired, just something the auction house bought in bulk so they can make a profit(if an auction house isn't selling something, they aren't making money). If the bidding is good, you can get some great deals through the auction. And if you have a large freezer, it's definitely worth a look.

    I tried AuctionZip.com but they didn't have food auctions as far as i could see. I know on Thursday mornings in the Kansas city Caverns they have food, ect auctions. But you have to take whole pallets so we better go prepared and know what you are doing.

    I go to one particular auction house in my area, he will do one about every other week now(used to be you could only find one once in a great while). I haven't researched the state, so I don't know if they do them all over, but they seem to be getting more popular than they used to be. I have never had to take a whole pallet of anything though, they'll divide it up among anyone who wants the item at the bid end until it's either gone or no one else wants any. I have also heard(but don't know for sure) that he donates some stuff to the area soup kitchen after the auctions. I would like to think he does.

    Food auctions - now that sounds very interesting. A group of people could go in together & then divide things up. Could be very worth while. Thanks for the post.

    It's in the north part on highway 210 across from the Ameristar Casino. I got a friend who still goes so I sent her an e-mail asking for more info. Hopefully I'll hear back before I leave!
