Feifei
大家好,欢迎来到 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲,还有 Rob。

Rob
Yes I am. Hello.And I'm feeling a bit peckish.

Feifei
Peckish? 你饿吗?

Rob
Yes, I am a little hungry.

Feifei
那录完节目后,你就可以去餐厅里 buy yourself a bite to eat。

Rob
A what?

Feifei
A bite to eat – a snack, a sandwich and a packet of crisps maybe. And can you get me something too, please?

Rob
No, I won't be doing that, Feifei. Not now that I'm a freegan. That means I don't pay for food - I only eat what's free.

Feifei
Right. Rob 说他是一个“freegan”,所以他只吃不用花钱买的食物。免费的午餐?还有这好事儿?So how do you get it? Beg for it, steal it?

Rob
Of course not, Feifei. I just eat food that's been wasted – maybe thrown away by supermarkets or restaurants. I hate to see food being wasted.

Feifei
是的,浪费是非常不好的行为。这么说 freegan 就是指食用商店或人们抛弃的食品、以减少浪费的人?Wow Rob, this sounds like a good idea.

Rob
Yes. Let's hear from some other freegans in these examples – which are also free!

Examples
I'm trying to do my bit for the environment by reducing food that's thrown away, so I'm becoming a freegan.

My brother was so annoyed when he saw loads of food dumped in a bin at the back of the supermarket that he decided to collect it and give it to the homeless. I suppose you could call him a freegan.

Thrown away food isn't rubbish, it's free food! That's why I'm a freegan.

Feifei
这里是 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。在这集节目里,Rob 正在教给我们时髦词“freegan”的意思和用法。

Rob
And, Feifei, freegans like me, don't just eat free food - we give it to people who need it more than us.

Feifei
Rob, you've changed. Why are you now being so responsible and charitable?

Rob
I'm just a good person. Oh, and it's saved me loads of money.

Feifei
Ah, I get it. You're not being a good person – you're just being tight!

Rob
Tight – you mean not generous? Honestly!

Feifei
You're not a freegan, you are a freeloader. 你呀,就是个吃白食的人。Come on, admit it, Rob.

Rob
Ermm, well, I'm just gonna go to the canteen. What was it you wanted? Oh and could you lend me some money to buy something please?

Feifei
Bye, Rob.

Rob
Bye.
