What-is-project: CANstruction Long Beach is an annual event where teams of architects and engineers design and build 10′ x 10′ x 10′ structures out of canned goods, usually under a theme (www.canstructionlongbeach.org). The structures are on display for 10 days, then dismantled and all the cans are donated to Food Finders. The cans then are delivered to agencies that service the food insecure in our city and are used for Food Finders’ Food 4 Kids program. The 7th annual event takes place October 8-18.
How-will-you-succeed: Since 2014, this event has resulted in over 100,000 pounds of food donated to Food Finders. Each structure uses 2000-3000 cans! The event gets a lot of media coverage every year, so it gets the word out about food insecurity in our community. This being the 7th year, terri henry marketing intends to organize this event every year for the foreseeable future.
Who-are-you: Although CANstruction Long Beach is not a non-profit, its beneficiary and fiscal agent Food Finders is. Food Finders celebrated 30 years of rescuing food in 2019. Terri Henry Marketing has worked with Food Finders since 2013, organizing the first CANstruction in 2014.
