I disagree. When I give money to a homeless person I am trying to help them. if they then spend that money on alcohol or drugs I won't have improved their quality of life. If I were to give aid to a third world country expecting it to be spent on water or medicine but instead the government decided to spend it on guns I wouldn't think "I gave them the money it's theirs to do with as they will, I shouldn't dictate how they spend it" I would think "Why on earth is the money I sent to help being used to make the situation worse".

How dare you just assume that the guy will spend money on booze in the first place? And how is McDonalds FOOD? Talking to him first too much of an effort for you? You're only buying him the cheapest, vilest form of nutrition to make yourself feel good, but it's beyond hypocrisy and prejudice. Yuk yuk yuk You want to do something good? Take a few hours of your week and go volunteer in a hospital / homeless shelter/ etc

Well it's true. When they cook their meat, they reuse the grease that oozed out to cook the fries. Kind of gross, super unhealthy, but very delicious. Also environmentally friendly and saves them money...

At the homeless shelter where my family and I volunteer every month, there's a man who prefers to have a vegan diet, but settles for vegetarian. We're more than happy to make his dishes separately to accommodate his diet. We also take other food requests, because we want the people to enjoy the food we make for them. Being homeless is difficult enough, I think it's nice to give them some choices, some dignity...
