Canada is one of the most comfortable countries in terms of social security and assistance to the poor. You may think that no one but homeless people would look for food in dumpsters. But no, in this country appeared a new movement.
They call themselves freegans. This word is a combination of two words: free and vegan. They are looking for food that was thrown from the shelves of grocery stores or showcases. This approach is not aimed at cost savings in the food acquisition, although this fact is not excluded by freegans. In addition to trash cans, these madmen also collect food at supermarkets and bakeries. In the last ones, baked goods are often recycled or thrown away. We offer you the possibility to dive into the world of freegans for a little bit.
