SPECTRUM FOODS: 'SALUTE AMERICA' AT MACARTHUR PARK

 SAN FRANCISCO, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- What do 26,000 meals, artists who survive by cleaning up the city and local four-star chefs have in common? They are all part of the recycling theme of MacArthur Park's Salute America cocktail party on April 28 from 6-9 p.m. to benefit Food Runners, an agency that rescues excess prepared and perishable food from restaurants to feed the hungry.
 At 5 p.m., chefs from 25 restaurants including Ciao, Etrusca, La Folie, the Ritz Carlton, Cypress Club, Moose's and Town's End will join together to kick-off a Planned Overage Program. These restaurants combined will prepare over 1,000 nutritious meals weekly from the extra ingredients all restaurants inevitably produce. These meals will be picked up by Food Runners and delivered to local hunger-relief agencies once a week.
 In addition, four local artists will be on hand with their "recycled" art made from litter found in the street. They include a 65-year-old woman, Jo Hansen, who's been sweeping the street in front of her house for over 20 years. And, Kathleen Edwards, whose found wood, metal, rubber and bones led to the creation of a six-foot-tall sculpture entitled "Bob."
 MacArthur Park will be closed for dinner as Salute America will encompass the entire restaurant and feature food and beverages from around the country and live music by the Essentials. Tickets are $20 at the door.
