Other Cities Eye Green Carts
DateNovember 10, 2010
Every philanthropist dreams of financing a model program that proves so successful that others want to replicate it.
But Laurie M. Tisch had no idea that she would pave the way for other cities when she offered to donate $250,000 to help get a New York nutrition program off the ground.
Almost two years and $1.5 million later, the NYC Green Carts program is attracting attention from other philanthropists and food organizations. Even the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation considered it as a potential economic stimulus program in Philadelphia.
