Warwick's Crushed Ball Feeds The Needy

1/27/2009 1:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's one positive coming from Dionne Warwick's canceled-at-the-last-minute American Music Inaugural Ball -- all the unused food is now being served at food shelters across D.C.

Dion Warwick
The D.C. Central Kitchen -- which has been around for nearly 20 years -- was given 2,500 pounds of ribs, pork loin, chicken parmesan, baked goods and fruit by the Marriott Wardman Park -- where Dionne's ball was set to go down.

The Kitchen distributed the food to nearly 100 shelters and social-service agencies.

We're told the one leftover the Marriott didn't donate to the Kitchen was ... the champagne.

What a great thing to do. Especially during these times, food banks are in desperate need. Way to go!

All the money wasted on the high priced fancy food could have been spent to buy 10 times as much food in bulk. What a colossal waste.
