Free Food


This page was inspired by a poor soul in Safeway that was buying a tiny package of rosemary, when unbeknownst to her, there was rosemary growing out in the parking lot and all over town. Description to come soon, (anyone want to take a stab at it?) Also see Dumpster Diving.

Free Fruit

Davis is an agricultural town, with a lot of fruit trees and edible landscaping in town and all over the UC Davis campus. Here's where to look.

Free Herbs

Many herbs can be found in the herb garden inside the Student Experimental Farm, they are free to pick but please make sure the plants will survive.

Other Free Edible Plant and Plant-like Material

Free Beverages

Free Prepared Food

Free Samples

Many places offer free samples. While this may not be quite enough for a full meal, it can still be fun to grab a nice bite of something tasty.

This page gives me the creeps, especially the one setting down at a strangers table after they have left to finish what's there. You might catch the hibby jibbies
