About Canstruction


Canstruction is an international community service project of the design and construction industry to benefit community food banks.  With the support of local teams, thousands of hungry people are fed; a greater awareness of the issues surrounding hunger is brought to the public while spotlighting the local design and construction industry giving back to the community.

Architects, engineers, designers and contractors compete to design and build fantastic giant-sized structures made entirely out of canned foods.  After the structures are built and the winners declared, the creations go on view to the general public as a giant art exhibit.  At the close of the competition, all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food bank for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.  Through the generosity of volunteers, celebrity jurors and members of our local community, Cincinnati Canstruction has contributed 500,000 pounds of food to the Freestore Foodbank.  ‘One Man Can’ be a catalyst for change.  If you are interested or would like additional event information, contact us.

Canstruction, Inc. is a volunteer trademarked charity created by The Society for Design Administration as their non-profit foundation.
