"There are such healthy meals. We get a lot of protein, a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruits. A lot of coffee, luckily. Health hasn't been a concern," one Occupier said. Here, a volunteer hands out apples (and proves to us that they aren't laced with cyanide.)
"In the beginning there was a lot of pizza, but [that]'s been cycled out. Every now and then, you'll see it, but recently it's been a lot of rice and beans, Chinese food," said these protesters, who had been occupying since day one.
Asked if all the free food had made these Occupiers fat, one responded, "I've gained intellectual weight."
Another source of intellectual weight could be found at the makeshift library, where Occupiers were asked to adhere to the honor system.
