SHOWING SOME GLOVE Kim Kardashian wears massive protective gloves as she and sister Kourtney feed the homeless in LA

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has helped the homeless for years – even taking one man off the streets to clean up his life

KIM Kardashian clearly didn’t fancy getting her hands dirty when she headed out into Los Angeles to hand out food to the homeless.

Covering her hands with a pair of protective gloves, she smiled at the cameras as she dished out grub to those in need.

Kim Kardashian put health and safety first when she took her daughter North, left, and nephew Mason, right, to feed the homeless in Los Angeles

The family, including Kim’s sister Kourtney, helped dish out canned goods and fresh fruit and vegetables to those in need

She wasn’t alone in her philanthropic mission, as she roped in her daughter North, her sister Kourtney and her son Mason to help her.

As well as giving out fruit and vegetables, Kim and Kourtney gave away boxes of oats and canned food.

It’s not the first time Kim and her family have taken to helping those in need.

During one episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the cameras followed Kim, Kourtney and Khloe as they took in a homeless man called Shorty.

Kim has long been involved with helping with homeless charities

And it seems she was keen to get North involved too – with the four-year-old helping her mum to pack up bags

She also handed out sweet treats under the watchful eye of Kim

As well as taking him back to their home to offer him a shower and a makeover, they paid for him to have dental work to help sort his teeth.

While Kim has long been a helper of those in need, she credited the robbery in Paris – which saw her held at gunpoint by a group of armed men last October – as a turning point in her life.

She told Ellen DeGeneres: “I was definitely materialistic before.

“Not that there’s anything bad with having things and working to get those things – I’m really proud of everyone around me that’s successful.

Kourtney beamed as she talked to those who had come to use the food drive

Since the Paris robbery last year, Kim made a conscious decision to change her life

“And of course, when you get engaged you’re going to show off your ring. If you get a car, you feel really proud and you might show it off on social media.

“But I’m not here to show off the way I used to.

She says she is now not as materialistic as she once was

When it was time to pack up, the kids helped gather everything up

And North could be seen helping Kim with their bulging backs

“It’s just not who I am anymore. I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. I really don’t.”

As they handed our their offerings, Kourtney smiled as she spoke to those who’d come to the food drive.

While North and Mason helped out as much as they could, with North appearing to load bags with treats for those in need.
