Canstruction

from September 10 to September 22

Canstruction® is an international charity competition where teams compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the competition all of the food is donated to local food banks.

In 2020, Bergen County was estimated to have experienced a 71% increase in food insecurity, totaling over 103,000 individuals who did not know from where their next meal was going to come.

Donations to the Bergen County Food Security Task Force are appreciated. You can donate here.

We would like to thank our participating companies:

  • South Shore Sign Company
  • Bergen County Technical School District
  • DMR Architects
  • RSC Architects
  • Center Stage Productions
  • Dimensional Worldwide Inc.
  • JRM Construction Management & Kenneth Park Architects
  • Boston Retail Solutions

Westfield Garden State Plaza will be donating all food cans to the Center for Food Action.

Visit the amazing exhibits displayed in Macy's Court, Level 2 near Shake Shack, and Level 1 near Pandora from September 10th - 22nd.
