Alice Waters, Sofia Coppola, Dave Eggers to Hand Out Free Lunches Near Union Square Next Week
The great Lady Waters and several celebrity guests will be handing out local, organic boxed lunches for free on Maiden Lane from 12:30 p.m. until supplies run out next Wednesday, August 24. This event, co-sponsored by Levi's, is one of the many events happening in conjunction with Chez Panisse's 40th anniversary that are meant to bring attention to and benefit The Edible Schoolyard. It will feature live music, an Edible Schoolyard installation, and the likes of David Byrne, Dave Eggers, Sofia Coppola, and Maira Kalman handing out lunches alongside Alice. There's a $5 suggested donation to the event, which is bound to be quite popular. See further details below.
Also, there will be limited edition t-shirts for sale, from a new line by Levi's, all the proceeds of which will go to The Edible Schoolyard.
