Every can makes a real difference in someone's life.
Our dedicated Canstruction participants raised over 140 tons of food for the pantry over the past four years and we hope this year will bring us even closer to ending hunger in the area!

Each will be evaluated by design professionals and community leaders based on color, creativity and engineering.
