For those who don’t take the time to pore over the details of Yaro’s emails, his latest introduced a new initiative that may be the most astute campus project that the USG has ever undertaken: a FREE FOOD listserv. The email blurb reads:
Do you like free food? Then you’ll love our new FreeFood listserv. It’s a spam-free listserv intended to let students know where the free food is (e.g. “Free pizza in 20 minutes” or “Excess Indian Food in Frist 302″). To sign up, simply send “subscribe freefood” to email@example.com in the body of the message (remember to take out any email signature). Thanks to Rodrigo Menezes and Dylan Ackerman for setting this up.
And it’s already working! I got my first [FreeFood] email 35 minutes ago:
Free Turkish Food in the main lobby of Murray Dodge. It’s all vegetarian. There’s hummus, pita, grilled veggies, stuffed grape leaves, and almond rice.
And another one just now:
free cookies and water at J.Crew. no purchase necessary
This should be a godsend to all independent upperclassmen, expert scavengers and generally hungry Princetonians (read: the majority of our student population). Kudos to USG for being so attuned to the masses’ desires.
