Did Heather Mills Get a Bronx Cheer for Her Vegan Food Donation?

By

Heather Mills visited the impoverished neighborhood of Hunts Point in the South Bronx last weekend and brought its troubled residents relief in the form of $1 million worth of vegan food. Families brought their kids to a Back to School day with free school supplies and health screenings. The event included a barbecue, but Millss 1,000 meatless burgers werent publicized ahead of time. The Hunts Point Alliance for Children plans to distribute the food in healthy cafs, where neighborhood teens can gather over nutritious meals instead of hanging out on corners, Gourmet reports. Since when do neighborhood teens in any part of the country prefer the healthy caf to hanging out? While we dont dispute Millss generosity, the people of Hunts Point need a reliable grocery store before they need three years worth of soy burgers. What would Jonathan Kozol say?
