Unsurprisingly, the NY Times Dining Section has amazed me yet again.
I know the whole thing was for charity, but $1000 for ten crates of vegetables seems a little much. Spending lots of money to support an organization that teaches children about sustainability? Shouldn’t you practice what you preach? I don’t know…
However this part seemed reasonable:
“On the way out the door, guests could drop a $20 bill for a bag of vegetables, adding another $2,000 or so to the bottom line, which finally came to at least $250,000.”
$20 for a bag of veggies and a chance to support a good cause? Sign me up.
