For the ninth straight year, local designers, builders, engineers and architects have come together to create one of the most unique Los Angeles attractions – large-scale structures built solely from cans of food. Why? That’s a good question.
Canstruction L.A. (www.canstructionla.com), presented by Goya Foods, helps raise awareness about the battle against hunger and generates donations for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. All of the cans used in these structures will be donated to the food bank, which received more than 27,000 pounds of food from last year’s project.
The public can lend support, too. The “can creations” will be on display from noon-10 p.m. April 9, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. April 10 and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. April 11-12 at the Farmers and Merchants Bank Building (401 S. Main St., L.A.). You can view the creations for free, or for $1 per vote you can vote for your favorites. Proceeds will go to the L.A. Regional Food Bank. Last year’s event generated nearly $16,000 in donations.
