Canstruction, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. 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 competition all of the CansculpturesTM are dismantled food used in the structures is donated to the local food banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.
Canstruction also offers Special Events for companies that wish to create one off CansculpturesTM for their corporate social responsibility program, promotional materials or for a fun team building experience.
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.
