The case against soup kitchens for the homeless

Thames Reach: The problem with soup runs

"Our experience over many years is that soup runs and other handouts do little to assist people to move off of the street. In fact we believe that there is evidence that they act as a magnet bringing people back onto the street and contribute to them staying attached to a street life-style."

Not all charities support providing food handouts to the homeless.
