Penticton is a town in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada. Situated between the two lakes (Skaha lake to the south and Okanagan lake to the north), it is a pretty place with lots of vineyards and orchards, as well as an excellent climbing area.
There is an accessible dumpster in the north end of town, just by the highway and the river. It's a natural foods store at the Riverside Village shopping area. The dumpsters are behind an enclosed area, but really easy to squeeze in. (Last checked: May 2014)
A place where one could find a free hot meal is the local Soupateria, apparently a very friendly place with nice people, soup, some fruit and veggies and bread to take.
