Local Groups Raise Hunger Awareness in Greater Binghamton Through ‘Canstruction’

Traci Taylor

If you haven’t been to the Oakdale Mall, you might want to plan a trip to check out Canstruction!

According to WBNG, ten local groups got creative with more than 17,000 cans and have built giant structures made entirely out of canned food to increase hunger awareness in our community.

Since 1992, Canstruction, which is held annual in over 150 cities around the world, has raised over 21 million pounds of food.

You’ll be able to see the Canstruction structures now through this Sunday, March 30th at the Oakdale Mall. After Sunday, the structures will be taken down and all cans of food will be donated to both CHOW and the Food Bank of the Southern Tier along with an additional $15,000 from sponsors that will help support the Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s Backpack Program, which helps local kids get good nutrition on the weekend when they’re not in school.
