Church, Salvation, Army, and the soup kitchen. AHA... I got Every supermarket has those people that hand out sample durning the weekend. You can get pretty full if you hit every grocery store.
good answer and very true
Costco, especially on weekends. You can load up on so many samples you'll need to go home and take a nap. And if you do find a dollar in change in the sofa cushions, you can top it all off with one of their hot dogs.
See if they have any locations near you.
Sorry, didn't mention borrowing because when you mentioned you had no money, I thought you already tried other options like family and friends. Glad to read you now have food.
when I diet i start off by not eating anything for five days. You have some time lol :)
Pawn shop my man or payday loan
I was in that position once. I went to a local church and they gave me a BIG box of food. Later, when things got better for me, I went shopping and gave THEM a big box of food to give to someone else.
That's the way to do it. My local church stocked me up twice a couple of very lean years ago, and I made a point of returning the favor. This economy has taken such a toll on so many people, it's insane.
Start eating my dog food! He eats better than I do anyway! :-)
Dumpster dive behind convenience stores.
You'll find stuff that's expired, still in the package.
Veggies with rot spots you can make soup out of, just cut out the rot spots.
All clovers are edible-there's your salad.
You're young and didn't mention family. So for immediate call another friend (if you have a good friend-you can even talk to his parents---one of my friends sons did this with me and had an open invite anytime they were hungry), or as suggested above, visit a local church and/or call the pastor. Soup kitchens. The government services dept's. As soon as possible, find a job so you won't be in that situation again...and always have some money tucked away for little things that can last longer...Peanut butter, jelly, bread, honey, ramon noodles. A box of pasta can go a long way, paired with different spices, sauces, and things. (and once you have a few bucks, the dollar stores carry a lot of items for less, but be careful...a box of pasta that costs a dollar at the dollar store, may be on sale two-for-a-dollar at the grocery store, so look at sale ads). Best of Luck.
Go to a resteraunt, sit down enjoy your meal. Get up and leave
Nah, dine-n-dash is tacky, and shorts the probably already strapped waitstaff.
Get a restaurant job--you'll get both food and money.
Go raid the supermarket for the food they throw out just because it's past it's sell by date. You can literally live like a king on it.
Drink alot of water. It fills you up. For awhile anyway. Hope things improve for you real soon.
in times of famine or when a city is besieged, it is common to boil and eat leather or your fellow human beings.
raid the bins of supermarkets
Stick, string, worm, fish.
Be on the best diet ever.
Do you have a food pantry near you? You might try there.
always see if you can go round a friends house or try looking for leftovers in the fridge!
you can eat your cat or dog or any animal you have and be a caveman
Oh, man, these are some bad answers. I'll add mine.
Get arrested. If you don't cooperate under incarceration, they can hold you for (minimally) 72 hours. That's three hots and a cot. The only ***** is that you have to pay for it when you get out, financially and otherwise.
Cigarettes and Caffeine. Go into your local truck stop or Circle K and check out the creamer table next to the coffee machine. They have these shots of creamer that taste like coffee and have just as much caffeine. While you're at the truck stop, stand outside and bum smokes.
Other Drugs. Methamphetamine, Adderall, Ritalin, cocaine, benzedrine, dexedrine, ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, Daytime Cold and Flu... Any stimulant should do, really. Look hard. You'll find something around.
Now, none of these are real ALTERNATIVES to food, but they'll delay the hunger.
Personally tonight, my dinner is a forty of malt liquor that my roommate got for me on the way home from work (~1000 carbohydrate and sugar calories). I think we have some popcorn, but there's not really a way to pop it. I'm right there with you guys. Being poor (WORKING poor) is a biiiiitch.
Good luck to everyone. Hope your pantries are full of what you need.
go eat your foot....i do... it tastes like chicken
