Brookfield Place is hosting the 27th Annual Canstruction competition featuring unique sculptures made from unopened cans of food. The Canstruction competition challenges more than 20 teams of architects, engineers, and contractors to build sculptures made entirely out of cans of food. The unique structures will be placed on display and later donated to City Harvest for distribution to those in need.
Canstruction® New York has donated over 2 million pounds of food to local food banks since 1993, and over 1.2 million pounds to City Harvest since 2006. Since 1992, Canstruction® has raised nearly 82 million pounds of food for hunger relief organizations around the world with its signature, trademarked CanArt.®
City Harvest, 5013 nonprofit, operates in New York City through food rescue and distribution, and education. Since 1982, City Harvest has rescued more than 500 million pounds of food for hungry New Yorkers.
