CANSTRUCTION OF THE SOUTHERN TIER 2015 - Broome County
Canstruction® is an international hunger-relief competition where architects, engineers and contractors compete to designand build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food.
All proceeds benefit
At the close of the competition, all of the proceeds from Canstruction® of the Southern Tier will help support hunger-relief activities in Broome County. The Food Bank of the Southern Tier and CHOW work in partnership to leverage national, regional, and local resources to end hunger in our community. The canned food used in each structure will be distributed through CHOW to emergency food programs throughout Broome County including food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community meal programs.
The funds raised will support both agencies’ hunger-relief efforts including the Food Bank’s BackPack Program™.
The Southern Tier is joined by 100 cities across North America who will hold Canstruction® competitions in the coming year. Highlighting the creativity and compassion of top architectural and engineering firms, these astounding structures are helping to change the world – by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks. Winners of Canstruction® of the Southern Tier will be nominated for the chance to compete on a national level.
It starts with ONE can. To feed the hungry. To lift the spirit. To change the world.
