Famous personalities who have the means to dine in fancy restaurants always have a lot on their figurative plates. Now, some of them have taken time from their busy schedules to decorate real plates as a way of helping to feed the hungry.

At its annual fundraiser on November 22, Mazon Canada’s Montreal chapter will be auctioning off plates designed by the likes of self-help guru Deepak Chopra, author Margaret Atwood and actor and singer Theodore Bikel. There are also some by younger pop culture celebs like Tori Spelling, Nikki Yanofsky and Emmanuelle Chriqui.

And since we’re talking about plates here, there are, of course, some decorated by celebrity chefs like Mario Batali, Graham Kerr (a.k.a. The Galloping Gourmet), Bobby Flay and Daniel Boulud.
