I don't know, but I assume that they would need at least to cover costs such as utilities, any salaried staff, insurance cover and city licences. Is the 800 for a particular time period?

do you think it is right if the church charges rent for the place to be used for the homeless to feed them

On the one hand, no. On the other hand, churches operate on the charitable donations of parishioners, and have to manage and report spend. Take insurance - does the council permit them to provide food? What happens of someone slips, falls and is left disabled. Would you expect the Vatican to make payouts to the claimant.

I completely understand your sentiment, but every charitable organisation needs to be run as a business. An alternative questions might be:
1) Is the church making a profit from the hire of its premises?
2) If so, what does it do with the profit?
3) Why is the government not doing more?
