  • The UK's First Vending Machine for Homeless People

    'Created by the new Nottingham-based charity Action Hunger, the machine can be used with a traceable key card — 100 of which have been distributed among some of the most vulnerable members of the city’s homeless population.' ... 'The key cards used to operate the machine contain a chip that means they can be blocked or cancelled if they get lost, or are stolen. Each person with a card will be able to take three items a day from the machine. Those using the cards have to check into the Friary at least once a week to continue using them.'

      I can only hope that small, but distinct incentives towards the homeless allow them to regain a feeling of being within a working, functioning society; moreover, I hope that such incentives gravitate in finding a solution to returning and reintegrating the homeless population back into the Greater Society: our Society.
      That truly would be a wonderful step towards reducing the homeless population, and cleaning up our streets/parks/bridges- and so forth, and once again being a prosperous nation that genuinely cares about the people that weren't so lucky to have a family, a home to return to, or the Programs necessary to battle addictions and other medical ailments. ^_^

          Oh that's so mean... At least have some hope that the US might do it someday?
          If you want to.

              I mean I don't live there but I don't think they really care about the poor or the homeless, since they stay poor and homeless

                There are people that care about the poor and homeless, but, like, none of them are in power; although having that position doesn't always determine if they would help - or even be able to. But there're still people that care...

                  The people who care are vastly outnumbered

                        Well I'm very anticapitalist.
                        Maybe they'd do it thinking that it would make them look good, or something.
                        That's just my silly little thought...

                          This is a terrible idea.
