Background on freeganism:

Freeganism is a lifestyle based around adapting practical strategies to minimize personal consumer impact, cut financial support for the capitalist system that is destroying the earth and human and animal lives, and create new methods for people to survive and thrive based on sharing, mutual aid, social responsibility, and ecological concern. Freegan practices include dumpster diving for food, clothing, funiture, etc., squatting buildings, guerilla gardening, train hopping, and more.

I'm kinda free- but not that free.
My friend Nat is a dumpster diver, I give props to him!
I still though waste food in front of him at lunch.
(I try to manage my weight. The food industry's idea of portion size is let's get up to a size 12 in 2 months)

Frig you damn food courts! I don't have time to pack a lunch!
Frigin' Or Freegan?
