Since the start of this semester, I've been living off campus, which means I'm no longer on the meal plan. While this allows me a lot of flexibility in eating (the school dining hall closes pretty early, especially on weekends), it means I have to worry about how much I'm spending on food. My new favorite food is free food! ^.^
So far, I've gotten hot dogs and watermelon that were left over from a picnic, rice and pasta from an unknown donor, canned beans and mushrooms left over from Resident Resource training, apples from when students went apple picking, and eggs left over from Korean Thanksgiving. In fact, I've eaten lunch at school twice a week since the semester began, entirely for free!
Last night, I went to a recruiting event and ate free pizza. Today's free items were a root beer and a cup of chili from my friends. ^.^
I'm still fairly hungry most of the time, but free food has been a huge help!
