Solve clues on Twitter and eat for free

According to WWBT Channel 12 News on Friday, a new Twitter account is sending people on scavenger hunts for free food in the Richmond, Virginia area. This is much like similar accounts which offer hidden cash. However, this account offers only free food, snacks, desserts, and munchies in Central Virginia.

The anonymous person behind the account says it is just a way to give back to the community. He or she makes arrangement with the restaurants or stores to pay for free food or gift cards in advance and then drops clues leading to the free treats.

The account started posting last Monday night with a clue about a downtown restaurant having a famous recipe. Then a picture of General Robert E. Lee was posted as the next clue. The answer was Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken on West Broad Street, but no one showed up to claim their chicken dinner. Maybe that was because the public didn't know about the free food.

The second effort to give away free food was more successful. The donor posted a photo of Willow Lawn and promised 25 free ice cream cones. This time 15 treats were claimed at Chick-Fil-A.

The account now says it's looking for a cause and hopes to give away more food. Since the news about this venture was announced on television and perhaps through this article, more people will take advantage of the freebies around Richmond.

All you have to do is go to the Twitter account @Eat4FreeOnMe, solve the clue and show up for your free food. Also, visit the Twitter account to see what others are saying about this scavenger hunt around the city.
