FOOD BECOMES A LUXURY WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

Isn't it ironic that in New York the city with the highest index of food waste in the world— 60.144 homeless people struggle to eat every day?

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

It will be sold by those who need help.

HOW IT WORKS

Current collection

Each piece of jewelry represents a meal that a regular person has on a daily basis. I provide the homeless with a cardboard stand containing jewelry pieces to be traded for each real meal.

If you are willing to help and have a piece of the collection you can check where our street sellers are located, or you can order it online and we'll find the closest person to you and let you know when to pick up and exchange it for that meal.
