Model Supermodel Helena Cristensen

Having posed in sexy lingerie ads, Helena Christensen is not only a supermodel but a model citizen as well. Very few people knew that Christensen has an advocacy to bring food on the table of those who can’t afford it.

Once, Christensen was seen wandering the aisles of New York City, checking the supply of canned fruit salad, Chiquita bananas and Special K cereal. She wanted to learn how the Food Bank for New York City works behind the scenes. The Food Bank is a non-profit organization that raises funds to provide billions of pounds of food to feed the impoverished people across America. Christensen is one of the fund raisers of the organization.

In New York City alone, the Food Bank provides 300,000 of free meals each day. This is on top of pantries and shelters that the organization provides.

Christensen has been working at the warehouse, providing support to other volunteers. She asks questions, takes photos and cracks jokes. If she had the time, she visits a community kitchen off Harlem where some of the food stuff goes.
