There has been a blizzard of charitable food events lately, many of them exercises in full-out sybaritism, blowouts marked by the craziest kind of Roman excess. (Or at least decent eats.) But it’s okay, because they benefit charities like City Harvest, which collects leftover food and distributes it to the hungry. That organization, which feeds 260,000 New Yorkers each week, is now releasing Great Food, Good Hearts, a guide listing all the restaurants that partner with them, from H&H; Bagels to Le Bernardin. So do your part: Eat out more!
To get a copy of Great Food, Good Hearts, send a self-addressed envelope with a 87-cent stamp to City Harvest Restaurant Guide, 575 Eighth Avenue, Fourth Floor, New York, N.Y. 10018, or call 917-351-8700.
