I once found a great PDF document online which described strategies
and resources for being homeless in New York. It included lists of
sources for free food, lodging and tips on dumpster diving and other
great tidbits of information. It might have been published by an art
organization. I can't find it and I'd love to get a copy of it again.

I found a PDF that contains a detailed article on dumpster
diving in New York, as well as listings for resources such
as free meals. The site where it's hosted:
(Peace Earth & Justice News) seems to be defunct, but the
PDF is still visible in the Google cache of the page:

...and can be downloaded from this link:

The PEJ site seems to have been relocated to:

The USA News page:

...notes that StreetNewz is now hosted at:

...and the archives, including the issue in question,
Volume 1, #3 - October/November 2004, are accessible
on this page:

I don't know if this is the specific PDF you're seeking,
but this seems to be the sort of resource you're looking

Let me know what you think...

Though containing an excellent tutorial on dumpster-diving,
the StreetNewz newsletter originates out of Victoria, UK.

I thought I'd make that up to you with some other resources:

A forum devoted to dumpster-diving:

A site on Freeganism:

And their links page for dumpster diving tutorials:

There is no answer at this time.
