Calling All Hunger Heroes!

Capital Region CANstruction Hunger Heroes Food and Fund Drive originated in 2015 to provide everyone with an opportunity to be a part of the significant impact of the Regional CANstruction program! Since its inception, the Capital Region CANstruction program has engaged hundreds of talented architects, engineers, contractors, and students from all over the Capital Region to imagine and create colossal structures built completely out of canned food items.

The Capital Region CANstruction Hunger Heroes Food and Fund Drive is an annual competition which runs through February 25, 2017. The event invites teams of all shapes and sizes to collect food and funding to benefit The Food Pantries for the Capital District.

Registered teams will earn 1 point for every pound of food raised and 1 point for every dollar raised – teams can be individuals, companies, organizations, small groups, families, school districts, etc.  The top three teams will be honored at the Capital Region CANstruction Awards event on March 8, 2017.
