Tasteful art feeds the needy
Crate of food
Crates of food will be delivered from the gallery
An art exhibition will help feed residents of hostels and children's homes in Liverpool.

The crates of fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and ready meals are part of Your Supermarket by Dutch artist Guillaume Bijl at the Tate Liverpool.

Food is to be sent to Salvation Army hostels and children's homes in the city.

The display is part of a wider exhibition about shopping at the Tate.

'Tasty art'

Fiona Mason, corporate social responsibility manager at Tesco, which provides the food, explained: "We have calculated that in total this will mean over 15,000 worth of food will go to these hostels for the three-month duration of the exhibition.

"This is definitely tasteful art and tasty art too, and will make a real difference to many people this Christmas."

Your Supermarket is based on a Tesco Express and took a team of 70 people almost two weeks to build.

The fresh food will be replenished regularly in the exhibition, open until 23 March 2003.
