Canstruction Colorado is a friendly competition in which local architects and construction firms build giant sculptures made entirely of cans of food, which will eventually be donated to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters through We Don’t Waste.
“Canstruction Colorado: A Winter WonderCAN” opens at Stanley Marketplace on Friday, November 15, and remains on display through February 3.
Visitors to Stanley are invited to vote on their favorite Canstruction sculpture, via the We Don't Waste website or Venmo -- each vote costs $1, a donation to We Don't Waste, to help support their mission. These votes will help determine the winner of the People's Choice award. A panel of judges will award prizes for Best Meal, Best Use of Labels, Structural Ingenuity, and Most Cans.
We Don’t Waste is a Denver-based nonprofit that believes nutritious food should go to people, not landfills. We Don’t Waste reduces hunger and food waste in the Denver area by recovering quality, unused food from the food industry and delivering it free-of-charge to food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters serving those in need. Since 2009, We Don’t Waste has recovered and distributed more than 100 million servings of food to those in need.
