Canstruct a 'Burgh Without Hunger
Canstruction® 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 to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the viewing, all food is donated to local food banks.
Canstruction Pittsburgh Competition
Teams of design professionals across Pittsburgh create designs based on a theme. Structures will be on display at the Mall at Robinson. At the end of the exhibit, judges award prizes to the best structures and all food is donated to local food banks. Photos of the structures are also submitted to compete in the Canstruction® International Competition. Structures must be 8x8x8 ft. and contain non-perishable food items. Some structural support items are permissible. Teams may only have five members building at a time and structures must be completed in 12 hours.
Recognized for our commitment to innovation, hunger relief and collaboration, our work has helped raise over 25 million pounds of food since 1992.
