( CM ) - Generous GWYNETH PALTROW donated $75,000 (GBP37,500) to the Food Bank for New York City at a celebrity-studded benefit held for the organisation on Saturday (19Apr08).
The actress, an honoree at the event, dug into her own deep pockets to match the sum raised at the bash.
She told guests, "I've been thinking about all the crap my children have and how much food we throw away. We have to do better."
The Food Bank distributes free food to over 1.5 million hungry New Yorkers every year.
