Toronto-based competition 'Canstruction' encourages designers to build structures made entirely out of canned goods to raise money for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Architects, builders, engineers and designers gather from around the world to raise awareness about food shortages through the 'Canstruction' competition. Competing builders are split into groups and encouraged to use colorfully packaged canned goods to replicate gigantic versions of inanimate objects such as flowers, buildings and even famous products. Some notable constructions include Ontario's flower, the Trillium, made from yellow, green and yellow cans. Together, the teams raise thousands of dollars to help feed those in need.

The money raised from 'Canstruction' helps to raise money and donations for non-profit organizations that cater to those in need. The next 'Canstruction' competition is in February 14th, 2014.
