Canstruction
 
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 2017 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.
