Canstruction® Hong Kong is a talk of the town charity event organized by Food Angel and supported by Prudential Hong Kong Limited this year. Combining creativity, team spirit and philanthropic mind, the event aims to raise not only canned food but also a wider public awareness of people in need across Hong Kong.
More than 300 professionals, architects, designers and volunteers gathered at Hysan Place and Lee Theatre on 25 June 2016 to build 6 cansculptures with the theme of "Childhood Memories" by using nutritious cans of food. The cansculptures exhibition was held from 25 June to 5 July to raise public awareness of hunger issues in Hong Kong.
At the close of the exhibition, all canned foods used to build the structures are donated to Food Angel, and ultimately redistributed to the underprivileged communities across Hong Kong free of charge.
Canstruction is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the cansculptures go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.
Canstruction has helped raise over 25 million pounds of food since 1992. Canstruction events are held annually in over 150 cities around the world including North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia.
In 2012, Hong Kong became the 207th city around to world to host a Canstruction Competition. It is the very first Asian city to host this unique charity event or any competition of this kind.
