CANstruction® Exhibit

Visit The Gardens Mall beginning Monday, June 5 to view this year's CANstruction® sculptures in all Mall courts on the Lower Level. CANstruction® sculptures will remain on display until Saturday, June 17.

The CANstruction® Exhibit Opening Day will feature a Juror Walk Through as jurors choose the winner of the 2017 CANstruction® competition. 

Join an international project to benefit and raise awareness for the Palm Beach County Food Bank. Architects, designers, builders and other teams compete to create giant works of sculptural art, made entirely out of non-perishable foods. 

There’s an important reason why we do this

·         1 in 6 residents in Palm Beach County does not know where their next meal will come from. 

·         More than 66% of Palm Beach County’s children qualify for free or discounted school lunch.

It’s going to be big
We exceed expectations! In 2016 over 30,000 pounds of food was collected from the massive sculptures and over $50,000 was raised to benefit hungry individuals and families in our community. 

About CANstruction®
CANstruction® is a non-profit organization that leads an international project in which teams of architects, engineers, construction firms and students create giant structures made entirely out of non-perishable food items. These sculptures are exhibited to the public and judged in a celebratory competition, then the food is donated to the local food bank. Canstruction was founded in 1992 by the Society for Design Administrators and is one of the largest internationally recognized food drives of its kind, having raised more than 21 million pounds of food for communities around the world. The Palm Beach County event has the support of the Palm Beach Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the local chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction

Facts about hunger in Palm Beach County:

  • More than 15 percent of the County residents are considered, by USDA standards, as food insecure; meaning they do not know where their next meal is coming from.
  • More than 57 percent of all children enrolled in the School District of Palm Beach County qualify for free or reduced-price lunch program.
  • 184,000 residents currently receive supplemental nutrition assistance benefits.
  • The summer months are most critical when children do not have access to school-led food programs, and rescued agricultural resources are limited by the growing season.
