No: Hiv is not transmissible by sharing food or utensils. Hiv is spread by directly sharing body fluids such as semen or blood. This most commonly happens during sexual intercourse and / or with needle sharing. Always use a condom and spermicidal lubricant with sex and never re-use a needle that has been used by another person. Be safe.
