Amazing Canned Food Art (18 pieces)

You know all that canned food that we give away during Christmas time? Maybe we should create some art with it before we give it away…

The most unique food charity in the world, Canstruction is an annual international design/build competition where architects, engineers, designers, and students compete to design and build gigantic structures made entirely from cans of food!

Structures take about 8-12 weeks to complete and thousands of cans are used in the process. At the close of the exhibitions all of the canned food is donated to local food banks for distribution to emergency feeding programs that include pantries, soup kitchens, elderly, and day care centers. Since its inception, ten million pounds of food has been donated to aid in the fight against hunger.
