Canstruction® is a non-profit competition that decreases hunger and fights poverty in Toronto and cities around the world. Each year, teams of designers, architects and engineers – students and professionals – donate their time to build massive, incredible structures from cans of food, with donations going to the Daily Bread Food Bank, Toronto’s largest community food bank. In this city alone, more than 800,000 client visits happen each year, approximately 32 per cent of them children, use food-relief programs.
With one can of food as a catalyst for change, One Can® to represent the building block of change, Canstruction proves that small acts of kindness improve the lives of people in need. Since 1992, Canstruction has contributed more than 17.5 million pounds of food to food programs around the world, demonstrating that we can win the fight against hunger.
