Video: Wedding food dumped in garbage

By Staff

Asian workers were caught on camera dumping a massive quantity of excess food left over from a Saudi wedding into the garbage, triggering strong criticism from viewers.

A YouTube film published by ‘Ajel’ newspaper showed the workers emptying hundreds of large dishes into the bins, which appeared to be filled up.

“Look how extravagant these weddings are and that food could have been given to the poor instead of being thrown into the garbage,” a viewer said, according to the paper.

Another reader said the food could have been donated to a new charity project dubbed ‘excess food gathering’ to be distributed to those who need it.

The paper did not say where in Saudi Arabia the film was taken.
