5 Ways You Can Eat For Free
There are many different ways to eat for free. It will not be what you are use to eating and you most likely have to lower your standards and pride. Dumpster diving is a good way to eat for free. Grocery stores throw away outdated food all of the time. Most of this is still edible, and if you are lucky, you might even get some ice cream. Be careful digging in the dumpsters, and always clean your finds with hot water. Cook all foods that you find well done. Many cities have passed ordinances against dumpster diving, so check your local laws first.
Get yourself hired as a busboy at your local restaurant.There is much uneaten food that is left on customer's plates. You can smuggle home steaks, fish, burgers, and a variety of other items. After you get this food home, you can make stews, soups, or just eat it as is. The same thing goes for fast food restaurants. Get a job at one working the late shift. At the end of the night, volunteer to take all the left over food to the dumpster. Instead of going to the dumpster, dump the food in your car for a ride home.
Being a beggar is also a good way to eat for free. Beg for change at shopping malls, airports, bars, and even at restaurants. You might collect enough to eat several times a day, with money left over. You will need a good sob story to increase your earnings. Most people have troubles of there own and can relate to the position you are in, leading them perhaps to be more generous.
Another way to eat for free is to capture insects, lizards, and rodents. Insects are full of protein and you probably eat them on a daily basis anyway. When crops are harvested, they still have many insect parts in them when they reach your table. If we eat these things without knowing what we are eating, we most likely would like the taste of most of it. You can supplement your protein diet with edible wild plants. Before you begin eating plants at random, buy a book or two on edible wild plants. Learn to identify them first and always start with small portions to get your stomach use to a diet change. If you are in any doubt about a plant, do not eat it. I would recommend not eating wild mushrooms, unless you know for certain what you have is not poisonous.
Eating at a mission or soup kitchen is another way to eat for free. Churches, the Salvation Army, and your local SWAN are good sources of free food. Don't forget to look for weddings, family reunions, and neighborhood cookouts. One more guest is never noticed.
