Art Works 4 Food
Brings Awareness to Hunger Epidemic
will be used to help feed healthy food to at risk children
in Palm Beach County.
Florida — On Wednesday, October 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Max’s
Harvest in Delray Beach, Art Works 4 Food will be the first
not for profit organization in Florida to utilize Augmented
Reality to bring art to life while also bringing the
awareness and funds needed to fight the children’s hunger
epidemic in Palm Beach County.
In recognition of
National Food Day and in support of the organization he
founded, Anthony V. Pugliese, III, will merge one of his own
paintings into a new reality – Augmented Reality.
This will be one of the first Augmented Experiences in
Augmented Reality, a
cutting edge technology, is the layering of digital
information onto real life objects and places. These digital
content layers are then viewable with computers or
smartphones and may take the form of text, video, or images.
According to Mr.
“This new technology blurs the line between what's real and
what's computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear and
feel. Guests who join us at Max’s Grill on October 24th
will experience my artwork in a new reality and get a chance
to help feed the children in our community who go hungry
each and every day.”
Pugliese encourages attendees to download the free app at
and to bring their iPhone, iPad or Android,
as this is an interactive art event.
Event attendees will
also be treated to delicious food and drink, which is taken
to the level of its own art form when prepared by Chef Chris
Miracolo of Max’s Harvest in Delray Beach.
“Max’s Harvest is proud to support the efforts of Art Works
4 Food on National Food Day and hopes that their efforts
will bring awareness of the nationwide celebration and
movement for healthy, affordable and sustainable food,”
Palm Beach County
has witnessed a nearly 200% increase since 2009 in the
number of people receiving food stamps and more than 50% of
its children are on a free or reduced lunch program. One in
three households with incomes less than or equal to $35,000
ran out of food before they had money to buy more. Many of
these children have diets consisting of cheap, salty, overly
processed packaged foods, high calorie sugary drinks and
“fast” foods made of white bread, fatty grain fed factory
farmed meat and french fries.
Art Works 4 Food
works to supply these children access to nutritious food.
Through their programs of serving over 5,000 healthy snacks
this past summer to local organizations and an upcoming
partnership with C.R.O.S. Ministries to create a
‘Nutritional Knapsack’ program which will feed school
children healthy alternatives on weekends during the school
year, Art Works 4 Food has just begun to make a difference.
