Being one of these delivery drivers seems like a bad job... maybe the driver was genuinely hungry. That doesn't make eating someone else's food right. But you have to consider, maybe the person is just trying to make ends meet and can't afford enough food to sustain themselves.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

With that kind of a moral compass, that person isn't going to get any further in life if they are going to make ends meet. He might as well be a bank robber as common sense is out the door from what is right or wrong.

If we order, its always pickup.
Our favourite restaurants are nearby so it takes 5-10 mins to pickup and be home!

It happens more than you think but on the upside it's nearly impossible to accomplish this when a customer orders certain things that cannot be consumed without noticing. For instance a pizza pie, a sub, an order of 6 wings or bites, etc.

The places to look out for is chinese restaurants where they fill food to the rim the point of collapsing. There you got enough room to eat 15% of the container and still make it look full.

How is this any different than the chef who is preparing your order of fries grabs a bunch from the container and eats some before shipping the food to the driver for delivery? You think a chefs hands are any cleaner than the drivers? Is that the comparison? You know many times I've seen chefs unable to close the container because it was full of food so they just ate the difference. Don't kid yourself as a chef has more tendencies to eat off your food than a driver.

MCD doesn't f around and will double bag and tape seal each delivery bag. Someone over there seems to have imagined what might happened so that it doesn't happen. I wish it was like this for all meal deliveries.

I'm generalizing here since every individual is different, but I guarantee you that on average a chef's hands will be an order of magnitude cleaner.
They (should be) always washing their hands or wearing gloves that are changed regularly.

Outside of getting something on them or taking a whiz a driver unless they're handling food for some reason has no real reason to wash their hands as much.
Between taking money (assuming it's not an app based) touching things in their car, doorbell, phone, etc they'll be dirtier by nature.

That's not to say I haven't seen some chefs that aren't disasters.
Plus I would imagine there's some drivers that are clean freaks.

If a chef or driver is low enough to pick at a customers food it wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t wash their hands. The few that do also probably don’t use soap just rinse with water and dry.

Reminds me. Always pick up hors d'ouvres at a party with your left hand as one of the many people you just shook your right hand with probably didn't wash their hands after they wiped their ass or picked their nose, etc. (I learned that on an Aborigine tour in Australia many years ago as they use that hand in the outback to do the same).

The difference is that the chef's hands are already handling food. They're actually always "picking" (or rather tasting) to make sure it's right.
It's part of the job.

EDIT: Also the chef can plan ahead to account for tasting (not that it's a lot) whereas the driver is now just shorting the customer.

We're not talking about an executive chef here man, I'm talking about the cook at these places where they have everything frozen, bottled and precooked for fast turnaround. No one from Boston pizza is doing a taste test to pre-plan for a meal. Gordon Food Services is their supplier and it's all pre-made of frozen. Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Still... the chefs heaters on average would be washing their hands more than drivers.

Thats very speculative, a cook would only have the incentive to wash their hands after visiting the bathroom and by then he’s already ate a few fries from someone’s plate. But if we’re going there what about McDonalds employees or Butler king employees who don’t even use gloves to make our burger?
