Freegans employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. We embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing; in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed.

Please join us for biweekly food-rescue missions and other actions to reclaim discarded consumer goods and build community in Uptown Manhattan.
