Canstruction is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the cansculptures go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organisations.
Recognised for their commitment to innovation, hunger relief and collaboration, the work has helped raise nearly 40 million pounds of food since 1992. Canstruction events are hosted in over 150 cities around the world including North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia.
