Canstruction Hunger Relief

WOODPATEL has been teaming with other local firms we frequently work with to create unique structures made entirely out of canned goods. From the collaboration of what the structure should be and how it best represents relieving hunger, to the structural and engineering planning, fundraising and collecting donations, late nights of testing the integrity of the build, to the final full-day competition, Canstruction proves to be an amazing way to give back and have some fun doing it!


Canstruction is an international hunger relief charity that raises millions of pounds of food each year for local food banks. Every year, Canstruction chapters have competitions citywide where teams create CanArt® to compete for awards in the following categories: Best Meal, Structural Ingenuity, Best Original Design, Most Cans, Best Use of Labels, and People’s Choice awards. Winners from each local competition then go on to compete internationally in these categories.
