Etiquette on Feeding the Homeless

Hosted by


Etiquette maven Helena Echlin has guidelines on what and how to feed the homeless. She shares the best approach for giving food to a homeless person and the types of food they might prefer. Can't find a homeless person to give your leftovers? Take a tip from the San Francisco-based movement Replate, which encourages those with unwanted leftovers to place them on top of the nearest trash can so that the food doesn't go to waste. Echlin writes the Table Manners column for Chow magazine.
