What is Canstruction

CANstruction allows students to make unique sculp­tures entirely out of canned food. After the judging and award ceremony takes place, all material used to make sculptures will be donated to Our Daily Bread - which is a food pantry located in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

How can you get involved

This year's OSU CANstruction event will be themed "FEEDING CHANGE" and will sponsor Our Daily Bread Food & Resource Center. Teams are encouraged to design a sculpture that represents how Feeding Change speaks to the mission of Our Daily Bread: Feeding our community collaboratively and providing connections that enable lasting change.

In Payne County, 18% of our neighbors are food insecure, lacking reliable access to healthy, nutritious, and life sustaining foods. In Stillwater alone, 33% of our neighbors live at or below the poverty line—this population is also disproportionally affected by poor health that is attributed to a limited access to healthy food.

There will be three workshops conducted on 17th, 18th, and 19th of September from 5.30-7.00 PM in HS465, Human Sciences, Oklahoma State University to train teams and individuals on using the software and developing the CANstruction.

The awards ceremony and gala will be held at Taylors Restaurant on the Oklahoma State Campus on Friday October 12, 2018. Attendees can expect cocktail attire, jazz music, and food. Tickets to the gala event are priced at $100.
