Canstruction

About This Campaign

This inaugural event is hosted by the Genesee Valley Center and benefits the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

Canstruction is a unqiue design & build charity art exhibition! Teams of college students partner with faculty and/or architects, engineers, contractors and designers to build structures entirely from canned foods. Please take a moment to watch the brief video about one of the events held earlier this year.

Attn Teams:  A $100 registration fee secures your spot in the competition and will be applied to the cost of the canned food for your structure.  Once you have registered your team, select the "I 'CAN" HELP button on your team's page to pay the registration fee.  If your team wishes to collect additional donations for your structure, please direct your supporters  your team's page.

Campaign to Support Food Bank of Eastern Michigan

Through program expansion, advocacy, and innovative solutions to identifying food resources, the Food Bank and the community will develop a joint, universal response to ending hunger in eastern Michigan. By creating new affiliations and addressing specific needs, the Food Bank will solidify itself as “The Food Source” and become the authority on addressing the needs of the hunger community.

Recognized for a commitment to art, innovation, and hunger relief Canstruction events and art exhibitions have helped raise millions of pounds of food for local food banks.

The idea of Canstruction was inspired by a group of New York Architects and Engineers in 1992. These architects introduced Citywide Canstruction Competitions as a way to unite the design, engineering and construction industry. Through this innovative and fun exhibition the Architecture & Engineering community was able to provide art and inspiration to the local community as well as canned food to local hunger relief organizations. Today Cansculptures® are created by Industries of various backgrounds including Construction, Agriculture, Education & PR firms to name a few.
