Canstruction Harrisonburg 2016

Canstruction Harrisonburg 2016 wrapped up earlier in April and it was a huge success. This year’s event included teams from Blue Ridge Architects, 4 teams from the JMU Engineering School, and Valley Engineering.  These amazing teams constructed a 8′ tall corn cob, a bridge, a space shuttle, and several buildings from JMU. With their combined efforts this event raised 6,098 pounds of food!

This event is important to our community because it raises awareness of the issues of hunger we have in our community. Factoring in inflation, many families now earn less than they did before the great recession. Finding it challenging to make ends meet, many people have to make tough choices between hunger and paying other bills. The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank serves an average of 118,600 people per month. They also distributed 24.8 million pounds or 20.6 million meals last year.
