The menu at the global food crisis summit in Hokkaido, Japan included "caviar, milkfed lamb, sea urchin and tuna, with champagne and wines flown in from Europe and the U.S."
I had to check Snopes, it sounded so unbelievable. But it's true, our world leaders met to discuss world hunger over an 18 course meal. The menu included a working lunch with two different wines and dinner with six. I too get my best ideas for ending world hunger after a couple glasses of vino.
Says Dominic Nutt, of the charity Save the Children:
"If the G8 wants to betray the hopes of a generation of children, it is going the right way about it."
