I'm sure it works that way in some restaurants, but unfortunately, not the one my husband and I work at. If you get caught taking/eat food without paying for it, you get fired.

Isn't this why we want to keep our gun laws in place?
So, that when people steal our things in bad economic times, we can kill them?

For those who are really worried about this they should look into what I like to call indoor farming, or indoor gardens that they can make sure the soil is clean and pure and also have climate control and light control, and it's inside so someone would have to come in and take it.
I haven't invested in this yet as there's no need to yet.
Also get the basics beans, rice and some greens and reds/yellows then you have everything you could need and also stock up bags of rice and other grains it will be hard at first to reduce food consumption to things like this even more so for the over consumer but if you learn moderation early you will be able to cope a lot sooner and more be more comfortable without hunger pains and head aches, also if you feel you can't go without taste stock up on simple spices or those little packets of flavors where you just add water they have a long shelf life and are cheap and will help psychologically as well so things don't get to mundane that's a big part of what a food crisis is going to impact on Americans who once had it "easy" they psychological impact because must of us don't realize what a minimum of food we can actually live on.
