for the **2007 lunchbox auction**, 100+ iconic celebrities from the entertainment, fashion, art, music, literary and culinary worlds remind us that food matters by creating personalized lunchbox art for online auction. the auction benefits two hunger-relief organizations - food bank for new york city and the lunchbox fund of south africa. each lunchbox is signed and no two lunchboxes are alike.
hunger is a global problem. whether it is new york city or soweto, south africa, the children of the world are the ones most severely affected. in new york city, approximately 1.3 million people turn to food assistance programs like soup kitchens and food pantries - and one in five of them is a child. south africa, a country that is rich and prosperous, is also a country in which an estimated eighteen million people live without adequate food, water or sanitation. children are often forced to make a decision to learn or to eat.
