Support Hunger

Florida Food Banks  volunteers donate an hour or two a week to help redirect food from those who can’t use it to agencies and people who need it. Last year we rescued more than a million pounds of food and delivered it free of charge to Palm Beach County’s residents, who could really put it to use.

Sylvain Roberge

Quebec-born Canadian artist Sylvain Roberge stands out as a great visionary. His work is characterized by a color palette that is as varied as the scope of his themes, which are timeless but approached from a contemporary perspective, demonstrating a strong academic background that Roberge transcends through new experiences. After studying in Montreal and Toronto, the artist is exploring various plastic techniques to best reflect his current vision. He does not follow trends but perfects his style, creating remarkable works as time goes by.
