Asking me to not eat lunch out for a day, is like asking a Doctor to stop saving lives. (People depend on me in a way, right?) It feels weird posting something to this site about skipping lunch, but it’s for a good cause, so I guess Midtown Lunch can skip a day of eating out. Today is City Harvest’s “Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger” day, and they’re asking individuals to donate what they would normally spend on lunch, to help feed New York City’s hungry kids and their families. With the amount of money you would spend on a Midtown Lunch ($10), they can help feed two children for a month. And if you didn’t bring a bagged lunch, or can’t skip lunch entirely (I know I usually pass out if I’m not lunch’ing by 12:15), get two slices of $1 pizza, and give the other $8 to City Harvest.
