Last week I got off my can and made my way to the Winter Garden Brookfield Place for this year’s Canstruction New York. Canstruction is a charity focused on hunger relief. Across the country and around the world design, engineering and construction professionals use their skills to design and construct large-scale displays made entirely of full cans of food. The public is invited to view and enjoy the extraordinary exhibit, and in return; donate a can of food and vote for their favorite entry. Additionally, the unusual building blocks of canned food are donated to local food banks.
Here are a few photos from the New York City event and a few facts about hunger in the United States of America.
Canstruction will be on view through November, 13th.
