Eat, drink and be caring.
June 4, 2006 - 22:40.
On Sunday night, I attended a benefit for Second Harvest Heartland at Napa Valley Grille, hosted by The Rake to usher in Twin Cities Restaurant Week. As a first course, they handed out plain rice to most of the crowd, while a few got rice with beans, and fewer still were presented with a lovely gourmet salad of fancy tomatoes and basil. The point was to demonstrate how food is apportioned in the world, and to make us think about how much we take for granted.
You can help needy families right here at home by eating out during Twin Cities Restaurant Week, June 5-11. Here is a list of participating restaurants. You will feel satisfied in more ways than one.
