Canstruction Harrisonburg

Canstruction Harrisonburg 2016  is a unique international nonprofit organization which hosts competitions, exhibitions, and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built the creations are on display on the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the viewing, all food is donated to local food banks.

Why Canstruction Matters?

The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank exists for a few very simple reasons: Food sustains life. It restores options. It provides hope.

BRAFB is an emergency food assistance agency that serves more than 114,000 people each month, a near record in the Food Bank’s history. Last year, we distributed 18 million meals to hungry families across the Blue Ridge. We expect to serve even more this year. The economy might be improving for many of us, but for the working poor, hunger is a daily struggle. Families shouldn’t have to choose between paying the electric bill or buying groceries.

Canstruction is coming Harrisonburg – will you have a team?

Canstruction is an international charity competition where designers compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the competition all the food will be donated to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. We are working out the details of the event, but so far I know it will be in April at the SVBA Home and Garden Show, we need teams signed up, and are looking for sponsors. More details will be announced soon. If you are interested in having a team or being a sponsor of the event, please let me know!
