Leave food for the poor to gather

This is the second reference I’ve read in the Bible commanding the people to intentionally leave food for the poor to harvest or gather themselves. I wonder what a modern day analogy for us in our non-agrarian lifestyles would be?

Leviticus 23:22

““When you harvest the crops of your land, do not harvest the grain along the edges of your fields, and do not pick up what the harvesters drop. Leave it for the poor and the foreigners living among you. I am the Lord your God.””
