There are some ways to get free food from restaurants and retail stores. Many restaurants have rewards cards, which earn and accumulate points each time you make a purchase. These places often offer free food either as a reward for eating there a certain number of times or sometimes give something free just for initially signing up. For example, Uno Pizzeria and Grill offers a free appetizer when you sign up for their rewards card. There are also numerous restaurants that will give free food on your birthday. Or, if you are a military veteran, many restaurants offer free meals on Veterans Day. As for retail stores, some supermarkets or large wholesale stores offer food samples regularly. For instance, member based stores like Costco and Sam’s Club have free samples of some of the various foods that they sell practically every day. If you don’t have stores near you which do, look for new supermarkets opening nearby as many will give out promotional samples in order to build up a customer base.
