In an effort to increase hunger-relief awareness and collect food donations for the Tarrant Area Food Bank (TAFB), Peloton Land Solutions participated in the Alliance Against Hunger Canstruction Contest. This was an AllianceTexas community-wide contest where participating companies collected and assembled canned and boxed food items into sculptures for judging. A panel of TAFB judges determined winners based on artistic achievement, structural integrity, and pounds of food collected.
Peloton Land Solutions’ Fort Worth office raised over 1,300 cans of food and constructed a winning design. The process began by brainstorming for a meaningful design that was relevant to the competition, but was also unique to Peloton. The team landed on an ambitious bulldozer concept they titled “Doze Over Hunger”. Because of the generous donations of our employees, the team was able to acquire the cans needed to see their vision through.
Building the bulldozer was a greater challenge than originally anticipated. The team began building on a Friday afternoon, and completed a large portion of the sculpture after 4 hours of work. The team continued to work on the sculpture during the next week, making adjustments in the final days leading up to the judging. The finished product took approximately 12 hours to complete.
The TAFB judges were thoroughly impressed with the design and building effort, and Peloton was awarded 1st place in the “Under 75 Employees Category”. The team was led by Chelsea Lemons and included members Thomas Brown, Jordan Kaylor, Adam Johnson, Raul Zavala, Callie Newton, Matt Schneider, Paul Kelly, and Randy Alexander.
