Press Release of the Day: Deli Meat Philanthropy
Wednesday, December 01, 2010 - 11:37 AM
We reporters are blessed to receive email from a cross-section of society, or at least their publicists. Today's is as selfless as they come: Eat our meat, feed the hungry.
"New Yorkers are invited to take a Deli Challenge this Thursday, December 2nd, and decide for themselves who has the best deli meat – Dietz & Watson or Boar’s Head. This friendly taste-testing is being conducted in an effort to help fight hunger during this holiday season. Shoppers will be asked to take a blind taste test, and in return, Dietz & Watson will donate one pound of food per participant to the Food Bank For New York City."
