Held annually, Canstruction brings together participants from all walks of life to create unique and awe-inspiring structures using canned food as building blocks. Let's delve into the details and discover how this event played a significant role in battling hunger in our local community.

Impact on Hunger

The Phoenix Canstruction 2017 event was an enormous success, leaving a lasting impact on hunger relief efforts in the community. With the generous contributions of individuals, companies, and organizations, we managed to collect and utilize an astounding number of canned food items. These donations directly benefited the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank and allowed us to continue providing essential support to those in need.

Event Highlights

Throughout the event, participants showcased their creativity, dedication, and passion for making a difference. The creative installations crafted out of canned foods demonstrated the power of unity and community involvement. From intricate sculptures to architectural marvels, each structure stood as a testament to the tireless efforts put forth by everyone involved.

Collaboration and Innovation

Canstruction 2017 fostered collaboration between local businesses, schools, and volunteers who worked together to build the remarkable structures. The level of innovation and artistic expression displayed by these teams was truly breathtaking. It showcased that fighting hunger can be a creative endeavor, bringing people from all backgrounds together for a common cause.

Public Engagement and Education

The event served as a platform to raise awareness about the critical issue of hunger within our community. It drew a large crowd of visitors who marveled at the incredible artworks and learned about the significance of food banks in supporting struggling individuals and families. Canstruction 2017 encouraged visitors to reflect on their role in combating hunger and inspired many to get involved.

Judges and Awards

A panel of esteemed judges evaluated the structures based on their design, ingenuity, and efficient use of canned food. Winning teams were awarded various prizes to celebrate their outstanding contributions. However, the true reward was knowing that these structures would be disassembled to provide nourishment and hope for those facing food insecurity.

Beyond Canstruction

While Canstruction 2017 served as a momentous event, its impact extended beyond the exhibition. All the canned food used in the structures was later distributed to local food banks, including the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank. This ensured that the donations were utilized to help alleviate hunger among our most vulnerable community members.
