Shelters get fancy food thanks to Sandy

NEW YORK (AP) - November 7, 2012

But folks displaced by Superstorm Sandy got to enjoy some gourmet grub yesterday.

The food was supposed to have been served at the New York Public Library's black-tie fundraiser.

But the gala was canceled in the wake of the massive storm.

So, the fancy vittles for about 600 people went to three shelters on hard-hit Staten Island.

Tickets for canceled gala went for $2,500.

Library officials say they haven't gotten requests for refunds.
