    EVERY soup kitchen should fail because the need for it no longer exists. Sadly, even in countries with social "safety nets", this position is unlikely to be achieved very soon.

      How does the need for a soup kitchen (and we're speaking in a very rough sense now of that word here: I'm talking about what equates to a weekly picnic for hungry folks) no longer exist?

        However, things are far closer to dystopian than utopian, so feeding people is still quite necessary.

          when we make it perfect.

          We can appeal to the Government over time for long-term solutions, but at this moment, we just need to stop the bleeding and not concern ourselves too much with the gunman.

          We are far, far from anything even remotely resembling a utopia. But we need to not lapse into cynicism either. There's still plenty we can do.
