CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

Leftovers

August 18, 2000

As part of their contracts, convention caterers had to donate their leftovers to charity, so every day the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank received as much as 1.5 tons of goodies such as edible flowers and smoked salmon. "We wonder what they must think at the shelters," said food bank spokesman Darren Hoffman. "They don't see this kind of food that often. . . . Even I don't see it that often."
