Watch Creative Competition: SUNY Oneonta ‘Canstruction’ Is Back April 2
SUNY Oneonta’s Center For Social Responsibility and Community's "Canstruction" event, led by executive director Linda Drake is back this year at the Southside Mall. Canstruction raises awareness about food insecurity and helps to collect nonperishable food for local families in need.
On April 2, teams made up of local businesses and SUNY Oneonta students will build structures out of donated cans of food with nothing else added in. Using the colors on cans is very important to the finished design and teams have an opportunity to be quite creative. Each team has its own unique design for the event.
Canstruction in Oneonta started back in 2011 and since then, has garnered more than 38,000 pounds of food that goes to local food pantries for distribution thanks to help from the Hunger Coalition of Otsego County.
On April 2, you can come out to the Southside Mall and watch the different teams creating their "canstruction" and then the creations will remain on display until April 10.
If you think this sounds like a fun activity to do, you can still get a group together to participate and make a difference in our community. Contact Linda Drake at (607) 436-2633 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you can see from the photos below, teams get quite creative with their "can creations"!
