Something I notice about the homeless I encounter here is that they generally aren't under-nourished. I guess there must be plenty of access to places who'll provide food in the city centre. I came across one more locally near a shopping centre and it looked like he was getting food from the supermarket bins and there are some clothing collection bins there too, so I occasionally see them being raided and this guy had himself a collection of shoes. I thought it pretty resourceful! 😆 It was just his socks that had huge holes in, so I got an extra pack while I was in the supermarket and he accepted them, but I think he'd have preferred I hadn't woken him. He did, however, hide them under his coat with a cake he was protecting, so I'm guessing socks are one of the less easy things to come by.
