At a family lunch, the daughter is passing around pork chops that were just taken out of a dumpster by her brother. The mother is putting bread out that has bits of green mold on it. Now, think about if that was your family. Would you want to eat your food when you learn it's all from a dumpster? Dumpster divers believe that they are doing the world good when they give their family and friends food from the dumpster. Believe it or not, some people actually support dumpster diving for food, and it's not just the people that cannot buy their own food — there are even guides on the internet encouraging more people to dumpster dive.
In reality, they could be giving their family food that makes them sick. I think it should be against the law because it’s unhealthy and people are trespassing on private property to get to the dumpsters.
People don’t even know what’s growing on or living in food that they collected from the dumpster. For all they know, there could be bugs or mold in the food they got from the dumpster. It is really unhealthy and people might get a serious sickness from dumpster diving for food. People could get worms inside their bodies or just rotten food that will unsettle their stomachs. When people usually eat food, they want food that is safe and not hazard to their health. Dumpster diving risks people eating food gone bad or just food that started to decompose. Would you like to take a bite out of an apple and see the inside all green or discover the apple has bugs inside of it?
Sometimes dumpster diving makes people break locks on dumpsters or climb on gates or fences to get to the food inside the dumpster. The dumpsters are on private property and thus it is illegal to dumpster dive. Plus, sometimes people may get injured or harmed while dumpster diving. Also, in some places dumpster diving is against the law so people are at risk of getting caught or arrested as they’re dumpster diving.
