  • Not unless you gave them food to go with the condiments.. It would seem like a piss take if you offered them condiments when they have no food to put them on.

    Just like it would be pointless giving a homeless person a tin of beans or soup, with no ring pull, if they had no tin opener

  • I want to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're heart is in the right place... but don't donate condiment packets, donate actual food please.

  • Condiments are great but not really worth their wild i bet. Option A. Unless you pair it with proper food food then i wouldn’t see that being cruel

  • I don't think it's cruel since at least you're trying to give them something. Plus if they do manage to find food later on but it tastes awful, they could use those to make it taste better. Plus not everyone has extra cash to give away, food, etc but still want to help in some way.

  • That's like offering salt to treat an open wound.

    I know a lot of homeless people that will eat condiment packets when they can't get anything else, because that little bit of sauce is better then nothing. We have a huge homeless population here.

    The city has public land set aside where the homeless are allowed to camp, and this includes forested areas under highway bridges.

    In those areas, we have actual tent cities, with voted "mayors" that establish rules, such as no drugs, no drunks, and and violent offenders must have a letter of recommendation before being allowed into that area. They communally share the cost and use of generators and portapotties, they maintain very neat and clean campsites, and they have gated perimeter fencing, which they take turns guarding. They even keep vegetable gardens, and they fish in the ponds.

    • By this logic, so is all of food in your parents fridge, so why not take that, and give it to the homeless?

      Just because *you* didn't pay for something, doesn't make it free.

    • @dragonfly6516 the homeless person can always go into a McDonald’s or something and get as many free packs of ketchup/mustard as they want
      They are unable to go into my parents fridge and take that food

    • they can do that if the manager allows it. i've seen quite a few homeless people be kicked out of fast food places though.

  • That's pretty shitty.

  • No. There's nothing inherently wrong with it. It depends upon your intention when giving it.
