    Food is heavily packaged and all clean etc. When I worked in a food store we would through away items for minimal things, such as a slight tear or dent in the packaging. Boxes of food totally fine for people to eat were put in big boxes awaiting to be collected for waste. Would perfectly edible food go to waste?

    Do not break the law or there will be consequences.

    Technically, taking food out of someone else’s bin is illegal, as it – rather bizarrely – is still regarded as their property, despite it being blatantly obvious that they no longer want it.

    Ermm. Never heard of that until now. And secondly, why would you want to try it? I'd do it if everyone in the world was blind except me; i'll be more worried about people seeing me than the germs around the food and packaging.

    It is an excellent form of exercise and allows one to lose weight rapidly.
