Canstruction New York 2013

Hi F&F,

Last week I got off my can and made my way to the Winter Garden Brookfield Place for this year’s Canstruction New YorkCanstruction 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.

    What a lovely idea. It must have taken a long time to construct those exhibits.

    Some people are so creative, nothing is “waste” or “junk” for them!
