New York City CANstruction Competiton and Exhibition

The 19th Annual New York City CANstruction® Competition and Exhibition is currently on view at locations throughout the World Financial Center  through November 21st!   The New York City competition highlights the creativity and compassion of the area's top architectural and engineering firms to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food.

These astounding structures are helping to change the world – by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks.

At the close of the competition all of the food from the New York City competition will be donated to City Harvest.

The New York City CANstruction® Competition has begun its 19th year thanks to the hundreds of volunteers, contributors and participants who dedicate their time and talent. The exhibition is currently on display in the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center, 220 Vesey Street and the West Side Highway.

This year the structures will provide enough food to feed nearly 60,000 hungry New Yorkers and we hope to double that amount through contributions from the public. Come and visit and bring a can to donate to City Harvest while your at it.
