I struggle with the same thing! I want to help, but don't really know how. One simple thing I always do is carry bottled water and packs of peanut butter crackers in my car. That way I have something to give them (besides money) and if they are hungry/thirsty it will help momentarily. Another thing I did in Mexico City with the people (mostly women) sitting outside of the Wal-Marts is invite them in and allow them to pick out basic need items (bread, milk, underwear, etc).

These are some simple, instant need fixes.
