AUSTIN (KXAN) – Ten teams spent Saturday building sculptures at Barton Creek Mall in an effort to battle hunger in Central Texas.
The teams made up of design professionals, construction experts and students could only use canned food for their sculptures. “CANstruction,” which is in its 7th year, aims to raise awareness and donations for those who need food this holiday season.
All donations will go to the Capital Area Food Bank’s 300 partner agencies in Central Texas. Those groups assist 46,000 Central Texans in 21 counties. In 2013, CANstruction raised over 35,000 meals for the Food Bank, and the sculptures have helped raise over 150,000 meals since 2009.
