Most commonly, canned food is associated with food banks. However, this annual event and fundraiser takes canned food to a whole other level. This month, Canstruction Victoria presented the theme “Around the World,” and gave a chance to travel the world and see incredible structures made entirely out of cans. Intrigued? Here’s a glimpse at the great show that Canstruction Victoria put on this May!

Dahlia Society’s Single Largest Food Drive for the Mustard Seed

Canstruction has one goal: to feed and inspire the world – one can at a time. This annual event showcases colossal exhibits made entirely out of full cans of food. Following the fundraiser, all of the cans are directly donated to the Mustard Seed. The Founder and Executive Director of the Dahlia Society, Christopher Mavrikos, says “The community support for Canstruction has been overwhelming.”
