As a great way to garner attention towards a good cause, the San Francisco Canstruction project gets the community involved in its charitable food drive.
Starting out as a competition, construction teams get cans of food such as tuna, sauce and beans donated to them by various sponsors and community members. Then they work with each other to create a giant sculpture out of these food items, hoping their design will win against those of other competing teams.
This fun competition is great for sparking creativity and generating buzz about the San Francisco Canstruction charity and what it does. After the winners have been chosen, the sculptures are left on display for the public, before being taken apart and donated to the hungry.
