I think instead of people throwing their uneaten bits away, some sort of program could be set up to at least have a proper and more hygenic way of
processing uneaten food.
Like maybe if someone has some food and doesn't eat it, or just takes a bite out of it, there could be containers set up somehow to put this food in.
The food could be used right away and it might be a bit more hygenic.
I have gone out to eat many times and get a big plate of stuff and sometimes I can't eat it all. Sometimes I just take a few bites of one entree or
dish. If I could scoop this up for another person, who would sell it or eat it right away, it would at least be a little less nasty.
The problem I have is with it being in the garbage and sitting around to go bad.
There are mall people, I have heard of them, they literally go into shopping malls and they wait for someone to order food. Then when the person is
done, they go and eat the rest of their food.
Sometimes a person may order french fries or a hamburger or something and they don't eat it all, then they just walk off or they throw the food
Then someone goes to retrieve it and they eat it. It is nasty, but some people are hungry and homeless and this is how they get some food. I can't
imagine doing this, but I have heard of people even in the United States doing this.
I also know that stores sometimes have food that is out of date and has to be thrown away. It may not be much out of date or 'that bad'. It might
still be edible.
You or I might not think it fit for consumption, but a starving person would eat it. They might feel a bit ill but if it doesn't kill them, they live
We are so quick to judge people but they are starving. I might become a mall person myself if I ever was out of money and no one would help me and I
couldn't get any government help.
I have seen homeless people eating from the trash in the United States. Once when I visited Washington D.C. I was in line for the White House and I
just bought a drink. As I was about to go in I was told I could not take the drink in. A homeless man was retrieving drinks this way. Some people were
buying drinks and being told they could not take them in, so they didn't even get much to drink from the cup. The homeless people knew they could
retrieve at least a bit more hygenic food or drink by being around landmarks such as this where food can not be taken in. At least it was a bit more
hygenic because it could be retrieved right away and didn't have a chance to spoil.
In another country where food is reused, I think there should be better ways to retrieve uneaten food so it would not have to be retrieved from the
garbage. I feel sorry for people who have to eat this way, but it doesn't seem to be killing anyone. There should be way for people to get together
with even some sort of simple way to contain the recently discarded food.
If all the venders got together, they could potentially work to make it better. Obviously everyone takes a chance eating after another person, but
starving people can't be too choosy. But there should be a way to at least have a way to contain the food so it is used right away before it has a
chance to mix with trash or be spoiled.
Before anyone judges, I think we might actually see this in the United States one day. It should never happen but what if people are starving and
there are no jobs and people have to eat? Rather than have riots or chaos, the Government should allow people to reused uneaten food or expired food
or even food that has bites taken out of it. Starving people already retireve this food anyway. If they have nothing to loose and want to take a
chance on it, then it should not be illegal.
I hope it never comes to that, but it could. But if it does there should be containers for paying customers to dump uneaten food so it can be stored
to use to feed the hungry. It should be quickly so it can not spoil. Those who chose to eat it will be agreeing under a nonverbal contract or
unwritten contract, they the take all risks involved with eating it.
