I second Matthew. In the article you referred to affordable housing options. I think you are mistaken in that South Park is littered with public housing "projects." (not affordable housing) For South Park to grow in a healthy, sustainable fashion, the projects will hold it back and must go. What's needed are affordable housing opportunities. A home that is affordable for families to move into, then they are, in return, granted the benefits of rooting themselves within a community and rewarded with rising property values.
The homeless don't prepare nor clean-up after the meals. (correct me here if someone knows otherwise, but I'm pretty sure this is how it is)
Everything is done for them. Just giving them a hand down does NOTHING to help them help themselves. Maybe if there WAS some participation by the homeless, the city might have a change of heart and even support the meals. Until that happens, the "charitable groups" and those who support their methods are likely actually doing harm to the homeless, themselves and the park.
