Cameron Diaz — along with other celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Colicchio and Salman Rushdie — has designed a lunch box to help benefit hunger relief. Called “The Lunchbox Auction”, all proceeds raised through sales of the creative designs will benefit the Food Bank for New York City and The Lunchbox Fund — which provides lunch to impoverished school children in South Africa.

Not surprisingly, Diaz’s creation is green-themed. One side depicts remnants of an environmental friendly lunch of whole foods and a metal fork. The other side shows a wasteful lunch: paper, plastic fork and cup, and a juice box. Actress Ellen Page, of Juno fame, took an entirely different route and created a lobster trap box, complete with stuffed lobster. Looks like a real bummer of a lunch box to me!

The auction will go until next Thursday — starting bids are at $100. Click here to learn more!

    Bahh there’s the grossest lunch box EVER in this auction… forget the poor fake lobster all caged up and stuffed… check out Mario Batali’s design!

    Look at what the description says… it’s actually painted in pig’s blood.

    I really hope that this is some sick joke.

    Outside: pigs blood and acrylic and the ingredients in a salami: salt, pepper, fennel seed.
    Inside: salted salami casings and a recipe.

    I’d HIGHLY suggest researching this organization before supporting this group. I know from insider information it is a pretty badly organized group… wouldn’t support them if my life depended on it.

    I think this could be a great concept, why nock it down when she is trying to do something good?

    I think Cameron’s lunchbox is great–it highlights the difference between a wastefree lunchbox and a lunchbox full of things that end up in a landfill. Waste not!!
