IT STARTS WITH ONE CAN®. TO FEED THE HUNGRY. TO LIFT THE SPIRIT.
TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Canstruction is using one can of food as a catalyst for change.
One Can® to represent the building blocks of massive sculptures.
One Can® to prove that every act of kindness makes a difference.
Since 1992, Canstruction has contributed over 17.5 million pounds of food to community food banks demonstrating that we can win the fight against hunger.

 
Canstruction Orange County combines the fun of a design/build competition with an ingenious way to help feed hungry people. Localprominent architectural, engineering, planning, and design firms, and students mentored by these professionals, create phenomenal structures built entirely out of canned food.

Judging occurs in categories such as Best Use of Labels, Structural Ingenuity, Best Meal, and Jurors Favorite and awards are presented at an annual fundraising gala. 

The structures go on view to the public at South Coast Plaza each year throughout the month of September in conjunction with the Festival of Children.

At the close of the exhibition all of the canned food used in these structures is donated to the Orange County Food Bank, for distribution to shelters, soup kitchens and other emergency feeding programs. With over 500,000 Orange County residents who are food insecure, join us at this year’s Orange County Canstruction event and help put an end to hunger.
