Teams will build structures of cans and packaged food at the 6th Annual Canstruction® Madison, a community competition to end hunger at West Towne Mall. The build will take place during day and evening hours at West Towne Mall.
Canstruction® Madison brings local businesses, architects, engineers, students and community members together to build imaginative structures out of canned goods andpackaged food. Supplies used are then donated to the MOM Food Pantry, serving Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains.
Every can makes a real difference in someone's life.
Our dedicated Canstruction participants raised over 150 tons of food for the pantry over the past five years and we hope this year will bring us even closer to ending hunger in the area!
Each structure will be evaluated by design professionals and community leaders based on color, creativity and engineering. The "People's Choice Award" will be voted on by the community in-person, through Facebook and Instagram, and announced at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday in the mall Food Court.
