in a world without hunGer.
Canstruction is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the creations go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.
There are three main ways to get involved with Canstruction Pittsburgh…

Teams consist of at least five members, with one person from the design community. Teams create designs, fundraise to build structures, and then construct their concepts.
