Acts of charity, long a hallmark of this city, have become more important than ever as a means of sustenance. Pina Andelora and her partner Angelo Picone ... realized that with their city's soup kitchens closed, they could still be useful. They would prepare meals for the homeless. [They relied on an old Neapolitan custom -- lowering food baskets from their balcony.] It has been done for centuries.

Moscati cared for the poor for free, and was declared a saint in 1987. They put a card on their baskets with Moscati's slogan: 'Those who can, put something in, those who can't, help yourself.'
The message has triggered an explosion of solidarity, Picone says. ... Photographs and videos of homeless people retrieving packages from the 'solidarity baskets' appeared last week in the Italian media.
