Worms will actually eat anything which was once living. It's just that some things don't go well with the vermiculture process weather indoor or outdoors. I know a number of people who store or process their worm food using a freezer. I'm sure it works just fine. I don't because I haven't any room in my freezers...all four of them! I do however, keep a number of five gallon buckets in the shed of vegetables which didn't get harvested prior to the fall frost. When I need some backup food to supplement the kitchen scraps, I bring a bucket in from the shed. After a couple of days I can chop the squash, cucumbers, etc. with a shovel and let them soak in their own juices. They get nice and mush which makes blending a lot simpler. Carrots, potatoes and that sort of thing only requires some water while thawing and they get soft and mushy as well. Just need to remember to keep the lid on the bucket.
