Free-foods -- For posting free food. (No Requests)


About Free-foods
English (USA)

For many years, was a mailing list known far & wide for sharing of extra food to those on the MIT campus.

Eventually, the spammers found the list and instead of sharing Spam with the listmembers, they starting sharing unwanted email.

This new list,, was created and put under a different list management system in order to stem this tide.

If you have leftover food and don't want to throw it out, please send email to to let people know where to come for it. (You can also keep emailing free-food@mit or freefood@mit or vultures@mit; as long as you send from an address in the realm, your message will be whitelisted and posted right away - else it will be held until a moderator can review your post.)

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Free-foods Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
