    Freegans

    Advertisements
    These people scoure places like Panera, bagel shops & bakeries and grocery stores for the food that is thrown away.

    Would you ever be interested in being a Freegan?

    The food is perfectly good (think bruised apples, baked goods that are a day old, dented cans, stuff that is past the "sell by date"--which means it's only passed it's peak flavor and still has tons of life left in it).

    If you think about all of the food America wastes, 38 million tons per year, we could feed Africa.

    I would consider doing it!

    I'm thinking of trying to find a group or something. I'm poor!

    Pssssh. I buy meat from the mark-down bin as long as it looks good. At the commissary, fi you catch the day the boneless/skinless chix breasts are 'expiring,' they mark those suckers down half price. That means b/s chix breasts for 99 cents a pound. I buy as many as I can fit in my freezer!

    They should set up a system. If they would just give away the bread or whatever every night upon closing, I would totally make it my mission to show up and take leftover baked goods off of their hands.

    I like to eat samples at Costco. I'm a lazy, less motivated "Freegan".

    Is it in a trash dumpster already?
    I know a lot of places donate some of that food to soup kitchens, or at least places used to when I was back in the States at the Salvation Army.





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.
