I apologize in advance if this seems distasteful in any way, I'm genuinely trying to be helpful.
I live in a low income area in the UK, however I am fairly comfortable financially.
It pains me greatly to think of all of the every day struggles people/families on low income face. Especially when people are struggling to feed themselves with quality foods.
Currently, my spare time is very limited and excess funds are not very consistent. So I would like to help spontaneously and sporadically until I can set up a more permanent solution (regular donations to charities etc).
My plan was to offer to pay for peoples' groceries while I am also shopping for mine and can also afford the extra cost. But I am unsure how I could consistently identify who could really use that help and how I would go about approaching them. I definitely do not want to offend anyone or make them feel uncomfortable.
How should I go about it?
