Canstruction is back at the Oakdale Mall


Local teams are once again showing off their creativity and engineering prowess with food that will later help feed the hungry.

Canstruction is back at the Oakdale Mall.

10 teams made up of local businesses, non-profits and student groups, have erected large sculptures made mostly from canned food.

The creations will be on display through Sunday, after which they will be disassembled and the food donated to CHOW.

Sponsorship money is also raised and given to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.

Canstruction, in its 6th year, is organized by the Broome Leadership Institute Alumni Association.

Canstruction Chairperson Jamie Jacobs says, “Each year, it just gets better and more and more creative. This year, we have the largest structure ever, the Empire State building, right behind me. It’s just great to see everybody come out to help local hunger relief.”

Tomorrow evening, there will be an awards reception for the teams and I am honored once again to serve as one of the judges.

There’s also a people’s choice award but hurry, time is running out.
