I have seen mentions of Freegans on various news media and social media. I find the concept very intriguing. Freegans eat only what they are able to gather at no cost. They utilize any and all available resources to achieve their goal. Edible plants found in nature provide a source of leafy greens for salads or berries and fruit in the correct seasons. Dumpsters seem to be their main source supplying the bulk of their meals. Every Freegan group I have knowledge of operates in a city. I am simply amazed at the amount and quality of food thrown away every day. I must admit I was shaking my head after my initial introduction to the world of Freegans due to thoughts of contaminated, spoiled, or otherwise unsafe foods. These concerns are unfounded for many reasons. The Freegan participants are very educated regarding food safety and the food thrown away in most large cities is fresh and often unopened. Talented and quick thinking Freegans eat as though they are wealthy simply by finding and accessing the best sources of food waste. I thought about making my own attempt at being a Freegan but it is not really feasible in my rural location. I would really like to try being a Freegan at least once in my life if I have the opportunity. A Freegan lifestyle saves a great deal of money with the added bonus of eating food beyond the reach of a low income individual or family.
