When the LDS would can on the wet pack side they not only provided help to their members through the bishop's store they made sure to share with the local community. Much of what they canned was grown on LDS farms. If you were a church member asking for help you may be asked to help on the farms or help can the finished goods. I know if I was out of work and needed help I would feel much better about myself knowing I helped others and provided services for the charity I was receiving.
Another example of big Gov killing individualism and great charity work.
