IT STARTS WITH ONE CAN®. TO FEED THE HUNGRY.
TO LIFT THE SPIRIT. TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
Canstruction® is using one can of food as a
catalyst for change. One Can® to represent the building blocks of
massive sculptures. One Can® to prove that every act of kindness makes a
difference. Since 1992, Canstruction® has contributed over 17.5 million
pounds of food to community food banks demonstrating that we can win
the fight against hunger.
Canstruction® combines the competitive
spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed the
hungry. Competing teams, lead by architects and engineers, showcase
their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned
food. Structures are created by stacking a variety of can sizes and
shapes using the product labels as the color palette. Structurally
self-supporting, the only other materials to be used are 1/4” leveling,
cardboard, tape, rubber bands and wire.
See the information below to participate in the 2016 Canstruction®
competitions being held in Iowa. Get involved and help feed the hungry
by starting a team, sponsoring the event, or simply
stopping by to view the structures.
