Lunch with Warren Buffett: $1.68 million - Food for kids: priceless

In Haiti, you can eat well for a dollar a day. In Des Moines, just .25 cents buys a nutritionally balanced meal for a starving child, from Kids Against Hunger. But you'll need more than a quarter to make the Buffett buffet.

Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett was interviewed today before lunch in New York with officials from Salida Capital, a Canadian Investment firm. Salida Capital paid $1.68 million dollars in 2009, to win this coveted seat at the Buffett table.

Billionaire investor, Buffett's annual charity lunch auctions benefit San Francisco's Glide Foundation, which provides social services to San Francisco's homeless and poor.
