Football and Food Carts
DateFebruary 2, 2012
Laurie Tisch is going to the Super Bowl, but first she had to pick up some vegetables in the Bronx. “Thursday I’m on the friends and family charter,” she reported. “Hopefully I’ll make it there for the friends and family dinner,” hosted, she said, by Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay.
Ms. Tisch’s family are co-owners of the New York Giants, though she may be better known for her philanthropy around New York City as head of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Foundation. Its efforts include supporting the NYC Green Cart Initiative, which brings fresh fruits and vegetables, sold on sidewalk carts, to the city’s underserved neighborhoods.
