Viral Video: A great deal of good food to be found at the store; Twitter outrage

‘Dumpster diving’ is more popular than we would like. A lot of the discarded food that ends up in the trash of grocery stores at the end of the day is scoured by the poor. Now one would assume this food is outdated and inedible which is why it ended up in the trash. But this video that has just surfaced online has surprised us all by showing absolutely delicious food found in a crate of a US supermarket. In just one night, a self-made ‘diver’ The so-called ‘diver’ rummaged through a store’s container and found so much edible food that it could serve an entire community!

From organic chicken and beef to yogurt, salads and chopped fruit, video posted by Twitter user @___inCANdescent shows the entire hunt for food stacked in neat piles. The diver who took the video said, “Everything is still good to consume.” She revealed that all the food has not expired and the low temperature outside keeps the food fresh. They were all collected from a trash can behind a Whole Foods supermarket. “This is ONE night at ONE store in America,” she wrote in the video caption, and said, “Last night, I found enough meat to feed an entire community.”

The viral video on Twitter was posted on December 12 and has since garnered 6.5 million views with thousands of comments and likes. Some people expressed distress at the waste of food in such large quantities. A former employee of a grocery store also admitted throwing away unspoiled food.

Watch:

While this video is quite disturbing, we were recently struck by some of the responsible people who came up with novel ideas to avoid food waste. A restaurant in Copenhagen Start serving foods that are about to expire at nominal rates. They collect the foods from the local supermarket. In a kind gesture, a pizzeria owner gives a free slice of pizza and soft drinks for all those who came outside the diner to find food in its trays.

This is not inspiration? We wish all grocers would come up with such ideas and offer rejected food to those who need it instead of just throwing it away.
