GOOD READING (JUST INFORMATION) GETTING FOOD HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

SURVIVE UNTIL THINGS ARE BETTER AND BELIEVE ONE DAY THEY WILL BE


Ask for leftovers at a restaurant
You might think it takes a lot of effort to ask for food, but practice makes perfect! Be patient and things will be alright. Some restaurants even give you a table to sit and put the food on it, right there, for free, if you don't have money. How does this work? You enter and wait till someone comes to you. You explain to the person that you don't have money. You ask if they have some left overs in the kitchen. It's good to have an empty plastic box in which they can put food.

The idea might seem ludicrous at first but if you live in a city you can easily try this in a restaurant district. With a success rate of 5% you'll need to try with 20 restaurants. It also depends on timing. Go after the busy time but not too late. It also helps to create a personal connection with the people working in the restaurant. They might not have any food the first time you ask but if they're friendly you can ask if they can set aside some leftovers the next day.
Get free food on the market: You can also ask around at markets. It's best to go around closing time. Tell them you don't have money and ask: "Maybe you have something that you can't sell anymore?" Ten against one that the person will give you some salad or apples. If not, thank the person anyway and ask at the next stall. Until you have plenty for yourself.

You can do the same with supermarkets. Big stores don't work out well for this. Employees will almost always say: "My boss does not allow me to do that." And you never get to speak that boss. Small supermarkets are much better and neighborhood stores. Many shops run by immigrants in big cities in the Western world are usually happy to give, especially shops ran by muslims.Search for food
Dandelions are easy to find and can be quite tastyFree food grows on trees, under the ground and in shrubberies. Dandelions, chickweed and wood sorret can be quite tasty and are easily found. If you practice a bit you'll know what to eat and more important what not. Even in cities you can find quite a lot of edible food. If you're near down town Seattle you're particularly lucky, as you'll be able to check out the first Food Forest in a major American city.

You can also find great food in dumpsters, for example at stores. This is called dumpster diving and many people do this. It might sound weird but it's really much weirder that almost half of produced food ends up as trash. Turning some of this into a meal doesn't seem so weird anymore. Check Trashwiki for great tips and places to dumpster dive, the project was started in 2008 by the same folks who work on Moneyless.org and features a lot of information about finding free food in rich countries.

No money or consciously without money
You might feel ashamed for not having money. But you can also accept it and live a rich life without it. The most important if you don't have money is that you don't feel ashamed about it. The fact that everyone around you does have money to eat doesn't mean you are less worthy than them, or that you have to be afraid about what others think about you. These are paradoxes created by society. You don't have to adhere to them.

Grow your own food
One of the best way to get food is to grow food. If you live in the country side and there's enough land you only need to get seeds. There are many seed swapping communities, where gardeners meet to exchange seeds. There's likely to be plenty of people willing to get you started if you don't have seed of your own to swap. If you live in the city guerrilla gardening can be an interesting alternative to owning your own land.

Don't be critical about what you get
With money you can often choose what to eat. Without money you don't have this choice most of the time. It's better to be satisfied with what you find or get. Are you used to eating meat? Meat is a bit harder to get or find. Are you vegetarian and asking at a restaurant? It's better to leave with it, you eat what they give you.

If you are critical about your food you can always resort to taking out a loan but it not recommended.
when your head is above water meaning you have finally gotten in a position to give back don't forget those who have been kind enough to help you. Give back what you can and make sure to be there for them and someone else who may be going through your same struggle.

ENJOY LIFE
