Supposedly it is worth checking out 7-11 dumpsters anywhere in the city.
A good spot is Quality Foods in the University Village. It is perhaps a 20min walk from downtown. Behind that store, one can find several green bio-waste bins, as well as some bigger dumpsters with random things as well as food. (Last checked: May 2014)
When it comes to social services, for those in need, there is an organisation that gives away free breakfast and a bag-to-go lunch at Prideaux street, every weekday from 7 to 10am. 710Club. Another place to find food is the Salvation Army's New Hope Center. You can either buy really cheap lunch (1$) and dinner (2$) or you can go to the office on any weekday and get free meal tickets. After meals, you can often take some food home (like bread, cookies, yogurt).
