Bare Minimum (Emma Hannaford, Mckayla Durant, Lindsay Hill, Katrina Clany and Samantha Mirabile) is a food cart that is made of reclaimed wood from already fallen trees in the forest, wood and metal from a barn destroyed by a hurricane and other locally collected materials.
It reflects the basic fundamentals that The Stop encourages. It is the concept of using what is available to its best potential. Using already reclaimed and recycled materials the cart is a reflection of environmentally friendly design and sustainable practices.
With portion of the wood donated from Ryerson University of Interior Design’s Year End Show entitled ‘Raw’, the overall aesthetic maintains a consistent message of unique individuality and overall harmony.
Reclaimed. Recycled. Reused. Remade

‘Pearl’ by Jing Yang, is a spoon that reflects seven concepts: scrape, iceberg, slope, limited, gather and coche. Scrape is a reflection of a shovel-like shape that takes into consideration the need for consuming the last few morsels of food. Iceberg is taking the leafy quality of the vegetable into a aesthetically pleasing shape. Slope, symbolizes the incline of poverty that people have to deal with. Limited, is based on the restricted food supply that disenfranchised people have to deal with. Gather captures the act of cupping treasure, unwilling to let food go. And coche looks at the Greek word for spoon and the materials that were used.
