CanstructionCanstruction is proof that the fight against hunger can be won if you’re willing to think outside the box. The non-profit organization hosts annual competitions across North America, where people design and build innovative life-size structures using canned food as a creative conduit to end hunger. Some of last year’s inventive can creations include a skyrocket titled One Giant Meal for Mankind by H.H. Angus and Associates, and a bicycle with a stop sign in the background titled Stop the Cycle of Hunger by Turner Fleischer Architects Inc. In total, over 2 million pounds of food was raised last year, enough to provide 1.5 million meals to the hungry. Since its inception in 1992, the charity has donated 15 million pounds of hope to community food banks. Canstruction 2011 will be coming to Toronto’s Dominion Centre on Nov. 8th, 2011.
