🌮A Good Way to Feed the Homeless?

Life is tough out there and many are rendered homeless and or starving I have been looking for a solution and started doing some research and found that some countries have already been using the method I am about to discuss. I think it is brilliant. Feeding the homeless can become costly quickly because of the large volume of people but what do you think about planting fruit trees in the side walks of our streets so that not just homeless have access to fruits but everyone. If we could have fruit trees planted at an accessible place many hungry people will be fed with some healthy sustenance needed for survival. What is your opinion do you think planting fruit trees in our side walks and parks will help feed the masses do you think it is a good idea?

A good way to feed the homeless is by clothing, assisting them with their daily needs and and shelter them.

If i have a possibility to help a Homeless i will find him a job where he can work for himself to make a living.

The thing is Leno some homeless people do make money on the streets and have adapted to the life style. Many do not have sober habits and feel begging for money is easier than working for it so yes there is a few homeless that would appreciate the opportunity but lets face the reality. These people are masters of manipulation in order to get money out of us they know we already feel bad for them. All I am saying is be careful. Sometimes all we can do is provide a meal and clothing and nothing more to help.

Hi, Shane. 
 
That is really a good idea. Planting fruit trees on each side of the street will give free food accessible to many homeless. I think it is an innovative idea. Is there any country who have done it?

Hi Ahmad I actually read that some parts of Italy have done this but I can be corrected and completely wrong I just really remember the good idea I read about and thought of asking if others may deem it a possible solution or not. I think it is.

I thought of setting up an organization under the auspices of the government that gave them free food and provided training for them

Adhara i don’t think an organization can do this job efficiently. It will work at the beginning but after a while the corruption will be a highest level that the homeless Will not receive what they should receive.

Hello Shane,
 
It is a nice thoughts you have here.  It is of course possible to plant fruit trees in the places and roads you mention in your question.  If someone are planning to take action with this suggestion if is of course some formalities that have to be in place.  You have to get it confirmed by a municipality if it is a public road or private area owners if this shall be done on private properties.
The best way to help homeless is to help them with clothes, food and housing.  The best would be to be able to give them a job.  It is many private and official  organizations that do this today all over the world.  Maybe we in the LuckScout club could establish a help organization where all money we collects goes to people that need help and such an organization would be free from corruption and other things that reduces the collected money.  Maybe an idea when we all get rich.

Hi Steinar what a lovely idea we just need to bare in mind that homeless people are not always sober in habits so providing and or creating job opportunities for them may be a waste of time however there are a few that deserve a way out I am not going to deny that. I have helped a homeless person with a place to stay, food and a job but I was told to my face that they make more money in the streets to support their bad drug and drinking habits so maybe we also just have to accept the reality that all we can do is provide a meal and clothing. However like I said above some really do want to change their fate so maybe like you say we should when we all have made some money start a organization to try and better the homeless peoples lives however we are also going to have to manage it by the best of our abilities and try not to be fooled by manipulation as the reality of the homeless is harsh but many also choose to stay there to support the bad habits they have developed.

I think that’s right, Leno.
Even in my country, there are many corruption cases in social institutions.
Then, what do you think?

If i have to offer something to someone who really need help,i will do it personally by myself,hand by hand. In this way the person will receive what he deserves.planting fruits plants is also a good way to feed many people including Homeless man helpless people.

I think that’s right, Mr. Leno.
But if we don’t have enough money to help, how do we do it?
What do you think?

Enough or not you we should give them directly not with a middleman. In this case the person will directly receive what he has to receive. But if there is a middleman there is 90% chance to not receive the total amount.
