Recently, the Canstruction event came to our community, blessing Redding Loaves and Fishes with over 2000 cans of food ! Trademarked by the Society for Design Administration, and working in tandem with the American Institute of Architects and other members of the design and construction industry, Canstruction® is making a significant contribution to the fight against HUNGER.
Canstruction® combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Competing teams, lead by architects and engineers, showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made entirely out of canned foods. At the close of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to local food banks for distribution to pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, elderly and day care centers.
A visual feast for the eyes, you will not want to miss the fifty Canstruction® Competitions scheduled to occur in 2004-2006. For more information on this wonderfull event, please visit our community spotlight page, and host a competition in your City !!!
