Canstruction | Calgary Food Bank
Canstruction® Calgary brings together teams of engineers, designers, architects and builders to create extraordinary structures out of non-perishable food items. The structures are judged, exhibited to the public and then de-canstructed, with food going to the Calgary Food Bank. Each year, there is a theme that teams must base their design around. Since 2006, this event has provided nearly 330,000 pounds of food to needy Calgarians. Canstruction® Calgary is the local chapter of Canstruction
, a global anti-hunger project founded by the Society for Design Administration, an affiliate organization of the American Institute of Architects. The event is held in more than 50 cities across North America.
