I approve of private individuals/companies giving food to the hungry. A Jewish carpenter I hold in high regard approved too, and I try to listen to him. However, I don’t see it as a dignity thing. We need to find less dignity in dependence on charity and more in rising out of the need for charity. It’s just compassion to use your own resources to feed those in need, whether that is bologna on two slices of bread or Starbucks. In return, those who receive the food have a responsibility to improve their situation so they no longer need that charity.
