Should restaurants fine people for their "leftovers"?

This news story might be a great discussion starter:

With so many hungry people in the world~ a restaurant in Saudi Arabia has come up with an unusual idea...fine diners for not cleaning their diner plates! The World Health Organization estimate one billion people are starving around the world. The restaurant owner is using the fine imposed for "having eyes bigger than their stomachs" when it comes to ordering meals~ to add starving people in Somalia. What do you think of this idea?
