Le Corbuffet Benefit for City Harvest

The neighbourhood of Bedford–Stuyvesant in Brooklyn has the highest rate of food insecurity in New York. A Le Corbuffet food event took place on a wintery December afternoon, wherein participants were asked to each bring canned foods. The goal was to collect 100-pounds of non-perishable edibles for City Harvest, a food rescue organisation that helps to feed the hungry in New York City. As an exercise in generative sociability, over 160 pounds of food was collected over the course of the three-hour social sculpture in which participants fed others while by being fed themselves.

Participants sampled some edible experiments from the forthcoming Le Corbuffet cookbook. The menu consisted of:

Ceasar Pelli cocktails
Anri 'Dammi i Colori' Sala(d)
Carolee Schneemann 'Meat Joy' Balls
Jackson Pollock Pie
Superstewdio
Walter de Maria 'Earth Room' Cake
