More than 18,000 cans of non-perishable food items will soon be delivered to the San Antonio Food Bank to help feed food insecure people throughout San Antonio and Southwest Texas. But first, they will delight visitors to the North Star Mall, where they will compete in the 15th Annual Canstruction Design and Build Competition.
Canstruction challenges teams of architects, engineers and contractors to help raise awareness and donate to the food bank by creating whimsical, oversized structures using boxes of fruits, vegetables, peanut butter, pasta, tuna and other foods. The seven sculptures, on display at the mall through Sept. 24, depict, among other subjects: the Alamo at sunset, a dinosaur munching on a large tin can, and a character inspired by a horror-based musical. of plants.
