FOOD BECOMES A LUXURY WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE IT

Isn’t it ironic that in New York, the city with the highest rate of food waste in the world, 60,144 homeless people struggle to eat every day?

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Foodxury is a project that illustrates this problem. A collection of jewelry that exposes what food means to an alarming number of people.

 

Each piece of jewelry represents a meal that a regular person has on a daily basis. The organization provides the homeless people a cardboard stand containing jewelry pieces so that they can easily trade them for a real meal.

 

If you are willing to help and have a piece of the collection you can check where the street sellers are located here. Or if you prefer, you can order it online and they will find the closest person to you and let you know when and where pick it up and exchange it for that meal.

 

WHERE TO FIND FOODXURIES?

In New York City: look at our ‘People’ page here.

In Argentina: you can help the Leandro Olmos Foundation

Esta comida no es real… pero salva vidas.
