In Lesson 6,Percy Buttons, the writer talked about a visit from a man named Percy Buttons. Percy Buttons was a beggar who wanted food, which means he was probablyflat broke. He was asking for ahand-out, or adonationof food.

A nice word for people like Percy is “thoseless-fortunate”, which means people who need help in meeting their basic needs. There are manycharitiesin countries like the UK and the USA, which raise money by collecting donations, and then use that money to help people with needs.

One example is asoup kitchen. A soup kitchen is a program where free meals are served to anyone who wants one. A soup kitchen does not just serve soup; it serves a balanced meal of meat, bread, fruit and vegetables, and the food is donated from people in the community. The food is prepared and served byvolunteers, or people who do not want to be paid for their work.

(soup kitchen- 不是仅仅提供汤的哦~)
