Canstruction® is a unique international charity which hosts exhibitions and competitions of giant whimsical and wildly inventive sculptures made entirely out of full cans of food. After they are built, the teams of architects, engineers, and contractors display their structures to the public to compete for winning titles. At the end of the event, all food is donated to Oregon Food Bank.

Portland Canstruction started in 1996 and are recognized for our commitment to hunger relief and helping communities strengthen local food systems. The Portland event has raised 662,000 pounds of food and $246,000 dollars which equals over 1,250,000 meals in our 27 years to help fight hunger in Oregon and Clark County, Washington!

To feed and inspire the world – one can at a time.
