Current response.

I’ve tried to mention that many legitimate opportunities will be lost if people are restricted to the programs that administer tokens. I probably would not have been able to get a token to “volunteer” at the WCCO radiothon to Kick Hunger for example. Also, the tokens just add another layer of bueacratic administration to something Los Angeles bus drivers have simply solved by extending the free rides to homeless members of their community.
