    You get to the fish and chip shop on closing and there is a man with 2 young kids begging for food as he has no money. WWYD?

    Buy him & the kids food from the F&C shop,or if it was closed, go to a shop nearby if there was one &get him food. Refer him on to a local service that can also provide food and help (I belong to a local church & work together with some charities & our own resources to help those in need,so would know where to refer him for help).

    Order extra food and give them some , ask if they live locally and that the kids have somewhere safe to sleep , it would worry me a parent begging for food with 2 kids on the street at night and hope they had somewhere to go

    If it's on closing I assume it's too late to order extra for them. So I would probably give them my order and then call the local authorities (not 000, but the local police station probably) and let then know there was a family in need. The police can sort through whether the father is doing a con, whether he is in some way negligent (druggo) or whether they are in fact a family facing rough times who could benefit from a shelter for a few nights/extra hand from the salvos etc

    I agree with this, and wouldn't think about calling the local police but it is a good point you really never know when it's a con even if kids are involved as sad as that is.

    And what if it is a con? You would let kids suffer?

    I'd give them some food one way or another, either from the F&C or from somewhere else nearby.

    I'd give them food if I had enough money.
    I just think in these situations you do what's needed in the moment. If you can be giving. .be giving.
