OP, I think what you did was great, & it was the most you could have done. I would hope that if they have an ongoing issue,the father will seek support from a service that can provide more. A random act of kindness like yours is all people need sometimes to be reminded that there is still good in the world & people willing to help.
A negative outlook on life will help no one. I would rather give abundantly and trust.
I'd probably give them money to be honest . I usually give money if someone asks. If it's a con it's a con, nothing I can do about it. Thank God that's not me begging.
I just give.
I don't need to know that someone is worthy or proper or grateful.
I'm privileged enough to just give.
I echo what everyone else has said here....tried my best to get this family some food.
The town where I live actually has a program where at certain shops you can leave some money on a tab for someone in need.
That man put his dignity aside to ask for help. You don't throw that back and someone and question their motives. I would rather be taken advantage of than let a child go hungry.
