Farmers’ markets:

I once scored a free baguette and some flowers at a farmer’s market in NYC. Never underestimate the power of friendly farmers and their willingness to sell their products to you. Bonus: it’s all locally sourced and organic so you can feel good while eating good!!

Points at your favorite food joint:

At some point in time, you probably had money. During that time, you probably ordered from your fav food spot over and over because it is just too damn good. Well next time you order from one of your favorite food spots, make sure to sign up for their rewards program. Domino’s definitely will give you a free medium two-topping pizza after a certain amount of points earned.

Birthday Discounts:

Go shawtyyyyyy it’s ya birthday!!! So now’s the time to start celebrating with some free food!! Starbucks will give you a free drink of your choice,  Buffalo Wild Wings will give you free snack sized wings, and IHOP will give you a free stack of pancakes just to celebrate you!! There are a hundred more food places that will give you free food to make your bday even sweeter so go ahead and celebrate.

College Food Pantry:

At my college (what’s up The New School!!), they provide a food pantry service to students out there who do not have the money to pay for rent, transportation, books, and food at the same time. They provide your basic every day needs from canned food, non-perishable items, grains, etc. Check with your school to see if they also provide a food pantry service so you won’t have to stress out about where your next meal is coming from.
