CanstructionOC “Wishing Away Hunger”

Location Info:

South Coast Plaza

Costa Mesa, CA  92626
Thirteen local architectural, construction, engineering, planning, and design teams will gather for the annual Canstruction® design-build competition, in partnership with South Coast Plaza, OC Food Bank, the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), the Festival of Children, and John Wayne Airport.

Starting Labor Day Canstruction OC will have 9 structures present throughout South Coast Plaza in conjunction with the Festival of Children.

Teams have just twelve hours to create phenomenal structures built entirely out of canned food, all of which is donated to the OC Food Bank at the completion of the exhibition.

Structures are judged in categories such as Best Use of Labels, Structural Ingenuity, and Best Meal, and the public can vote on their favorite sculptures for the People’s Choice Award.

Canstruction Orange County is using “one can” as a catalyst for change to support the 400,000 food-insecure Orange County residents.
