CANstruction cultivates creativity

CanstructionCSU’s 28th annual Cans Around the Oval food drive showcases creativity with its annual CANstruction challenge. Registered university and community organizations challenge one another to build unique sculptures out of cans and other donated food items collected from the Cans Around the Oval effort.

CANstruction allows teams to demonstrate their resourcefulness while helping people on campus understand the size and scope of hunger in the community and raising awareness for the food drive. All donations received benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County.

The event takes place 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15, at the Lory Student Center plaza. The structures will be judged by representatives from CSU and the Food Bank for Larimer County.
