Canstruction for food banks exhibit days

Canstruction Santa Monica has partnered with both Meals on Wheels West and the Westside Food Bank – they will receive 100% of the non-perishable food used in the construction of Canstruction. Canstruction Santa Monica will generate thousands of pounds of food for our community this year.
The competition will be held the first two weeks of November, 2019 in the lobbies of Water Garden at 1620 26th Street in Santa Monica.
It’s a festive event that challenges design teams to out create each other. It involves the community in judging and participation, and benefits the local food banks. Please let me know if you would like to cover this story and capture this year’s designs.
