Canstruction®Madison is a competition where teams build incredible, highly imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food they have purchased or collected. After the competition, all the food is donated to MOM's Food Pantry. Canstruction®Madison invites the public to view the structures and contribute their own donation of canned food to help end hunger.
Canstruction® is using one can of food as a catalyst for change. One Can® to represent the building blocks of massive sculptures. One Can® to prove that every act of kindness makes a difference.
Our goal for Canstruction® Madison 2014 is to be one of the top 10 cities in food raised worldwide!
Kurt Saupe was a wonderful father, husband, scientist, teacher and athlete. He passed away in June after a long battle with leukemia. It was Kurt's wish that something good come from his passing; he asked that his friends and family find a way to remember him by supporting the work of MOM.
The Kurt W. Saupe Foundation, Inc, held their first event, The Kurt, a sports and music festival, June 7-9, 2013 in Madison.
FCI started this event as a means to support both the arts and civic awareness of families in need through the efforts of Middleton Outreach Ministry.
For more than 30 years, MOM has led a community-wide effort to prevent homelessness & end hunger in West Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains, a service area that totals more than 60,000 people. With the help of business partners, area schools, affiliated churches, service clubs and hundreds of volunteers, MOM helps those who need them most by providing basic needs: Food, Clothing, Housing & Emergency Funds, Help for Seniors and Seasonal Programs.
