After being inspired by the movie Ghandi, Jon Henley decided that he would try to live the rest of his life without money.
It isn’t as rough as you’d think. In fact, I’m a bit jealous of the free food part myself.
The only material possession that Jon kept before he made is life-changing decision was a solar panel. With it, he powers his laptop and uses it to trade and/or ask for free things via online classifieds. For food, he goes dumpster diving and often gets a pretty decent meal.
Since I’ve worked at grocery stores, I know that management throws away pounds and pounds of food everyday because of company policies. Jon and his homeless friends take advantage of this system and (ironically) even criticize it.
