Each year, teams of architects, engineers and designers from firms and universities across Cincinnati get together to compete in Canstruction, all while raising awareness of hunger in our community. Teams design unique structures, raise money to purchase food, and then have five hours on Tuesday, April 4 to build their structures entirely out of canned goods. The large-scale art exhibit will remain on display through Sunday, April 23. At the close of the exhibit, all of the canned goods are donated to the Freestore Foodbank. In fact, it's among the top three largest food drives to support our efforts. Since the local competition began in 1997, Cincinnati’s “architects of food” have donated more than 736,000 pounds of food to the Freestore Foodbank, enough to provide over 613,000 meals to our hungry neighbors in the Tri-State area.
