Homelessnes vs begging

In the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there have been discussions about the fact that beggars are not necessarily homeless. I'm sure this is true. I don't advocate giving them money. (When I can afford it, I carry food to give people. ) However, not being homeless doesn't mean you can afford other necessities. There are children who loose weight in the winter because their families cannot afford both adequate heat and adequate food. When I was between jobs, I was not homeless, but I could not afford enough food, and was therefore losing weight.
