Sponge something from someone

When you sponge something from someone, you beg or borrow something from them.

Examples:  Whenever my cousin loses money in stock market, he sponges from his parents. * My brother sponged a thousand rupees from my parents. * My cousin has been sponging food from her relatives for a year now.
