Canstruction Chicago Is A Unique Food Charity Helping Those In Need
Canstruction is a unique food charity that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food.
"When you come to the mart we see a hundred thousand cans arranged as Mr. Peanut, an Elephant on a drum, or an Igloo," noted Dan Russell, Team Captain from RTKL Architects. "You start to think of an everyday object in a non-everyday way."
After the structures are built and the winners declared, the creations go on view to the general public as giant art exhibits. At the close of the competitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.
Launched in 1992, Canstruction has donated more than 17 million pounds of food to emergency feeding programs in the United States and Canada including pantries, soup kitchens, elderly and day care centers. In 2016 alone, 11.5 million pounds of canned food was donated to those in need.
Watch how this event brings the best of the Design World and the Community together to support local programs that fight hunger.
