Eating out of garbage can

I have a student that is bringing very healthy meals yet she is heading to the trash can after the other children clean up after lunch to check out and eat what is thrown away.  She repeatedly returns to the trash can after being careful that no one is looking.    Any ideas?  Or way to approach this with her?

Two things: First, set a limit on this - tell her to stop it. Second, inform her parents about it and also let your student support services team (guidance counselor, social worker, e.g.) know about it so they can follow up and be sure the parents arrange an evaluation with a mental health provider.
