I am new to the term freeganism but am very interested in the concept. I have always been one to recycle, re-use, reduce etc., but would like to take it a step further. I am one to take things others are throwing out such as perfectly good furniture and housewares but have never done this with food. I would like to see what this is like and how it is done from people who have already been living this way for a while. I hate how wasteful our society is and am angry that we have so many people going hungry when so much is just thrown away. I look forward to participating and meeting others with this mind set :)
My name is Mackenzie and I am newer to the DC metro area. I moved up here with my wife for better employment opportunities for her. I have a BS degree in Social Science and am working to go to school for a masters in forensic psychology.
