I seem to remember some of my fellow students looking at how to avoid 
buying food by going to the assorted colloquium on campus, and eating 
(and stashing) the food.  Sadly, the food they put out was high fat/high 
sugar, low nutritional value, which led to badly malnourished graduate 
students ... who were twitching badly from all the free (bad) coffee ...
