one of my least favourite things about China is the lack of compassion for other people, especially those in genuine need.
I volunteered to work with homeless people while I was in university, as people do this in my home country.
most were homeless due to no fault of their own and all they needed was shelter, some food and some human conversation.

offering food is a quick way to do that.
Those who accept are those in need.
