In each city 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.
So let’s get this straight: people bring their own cans of food to create cool art projets with them and then all the cans are donated to organizations who feed hungry people. Talk about using creativity to create change!
According to the Canstruction website, wherever a Canstruction competition is held, thousands of hungry people are fed, a greater awareness of the issues surrounding hunger is brought home to the public, and a spotlight is placed on the design and construction industry giving back to the communities it helps build. Not that’s a cool model.
Want to get involved? Check out the Canstruction website to find out more about joining a competition, hosting one in your own city, or discovering other ways to work towards eliminating hunger in your community.
