If someone asks for cash rather than food, then their need is for cash,
no?  Maybe they want to buy socks. Are you going to carry spare
socks around in case?  If they are asking *on the street* then however
we look at it, they must be in a bad way.

My take on this is that if it feels right, I give if I can.  I don't ask why
they need it, as if they didn't need it, they wouldn't be asking.
