Organization Information

Mission Statement

To Canstruct a World Without Hunger by raising canned food for local hunger relief organizations and raising awareness of food insecurity in our community through design/build competitions and canned food sculpture exhibitions

Description

Canstruction(r) is a not for profit charity, founded by the SDA, which hosts competitions and events creating awe-inspiring, gigantic structures made entirely out of non-perishable food. Teams of volunteers, which include design industry professionals, participate in Canstruction (r) events in over 100 cities around the world each year. The can art sculptures are on exhibit to the public in each city where a competition is held. The public is invited to donate non-perishable food items during the exhibition. At the close of an exhibition, all food from the structures and public donations are donated to local food banks. Canstruction (r) New York has donated over 2 million pounds of food to local food banks since 1993, and over 1.2 million pounds to City Harvest since 2006. Since 1992, Canstruction (r) has raised nearly 82 million pounds of food for hunger relief organizations around the world with its signature, trademarked CanArt. (r)
