Make Sculptures Out of Cans, Do Some Good

Make Sculptures Out of Cans, Do Some Good

Canstruction combines art and charity by donating cans to food banks

If these 44 ways to fight hunger in America aren't enough for you, here's some good news. Canstruction® is touring the nation, raising awareness and food for those in need.

Here's how it works: Canstruction® hosts a competition in any city, asking people to create giant sculptures out of canned food. The sculptures are then displayed to the public; when the exhibit is taken down, all the food used in the structures is donated to local food banks.

Last year, Canstruction® collected more than 2 million pounds of food. The next stops are New York City, Austin, and Houston, with multiple cities scheduled through September 2012. Check out some past winners below.

The Daily Byte is a regular column dedicated to covering interesting food news and trends across the country. Click here for previous columns.

last up is a really cool new camping stove that does not use the normal cooking stove gas cans, but rather whatever the natural enviornment around you can provide, no need to burn camp fuel to boil that water, plus this thing can charge your usb devices as well! Called the biolite. check it out!
