Vote for Your Favorite on Facebook!

Each year, we challenge local construction companies, architecture firms and designers to build art structures completely out of cans of food. The competition is called CANstruction and their efforts help us raise awareness of hunger in our community. Each year we are blown away by their ingenuity and creativity!

we want to hear from you

CollageTake a look and vote for your favorite by “liking” the photo on Facebook. The design with the most likes will win the People’s Choice Award!

Thank you to all of the participating firms, volunteers and everyone who helps to make this a great event. We hope you will take the time to view the installations, on display until April 20th at the Nashville Public Library. After that date, the installations will be disassembled and all 32,000+ pounds of food will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
