Dear PoPville – Helping the Homeless

Photo by PoPville flickr user ekelly80

Dear PoPville,

Instead of worrying about my own rat race for one day, id like to give back.

One way i thought of was, feeding the homeless.

I wanted to make a bunch of food, and have kind of like an assembly line, and just hand out a warm meal, somewhere in DC.. i was thinking Mcpherson square…
BUT, im pretty sure its not that simple is it?

Can I just pull up with some helpers, set up shop, and hand out food to the homeless without and kind of ramifications?

Any help would be appreciated.

You may also want to consider volunteering at Bread for the City. You can also feed the needy on Saturday mornings.
