New York officials have praised Paul McCartney's
ex-wife Heather Mills
for her $1 million food donation to a local charity.
Mills, who recently purchased a home in New York, had three years worth of veggie burgers delivered to impoverished children in the South Bronx, distributed through the area's Hope Center community organisation.
Over the weekend, she helped cook a vegan barbeque lunch for the low-income families. She is now set to receive honours from Congressman Josi Serrano and Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrisn.
Mills says, "I wanted to help make sure they have as many nutritional advantages as anyone else."
A spokesperson for the charity adds: "The reaction in the community to this donation is, 'Wow!' It enables us to provide over 2,800 children living in some of the poorest neighbourhoods in NYC with good, healthy food."
