Canstruction Winner Announced Tonight
BIG FLATS (WENY)--- Local companies and organizations are getting creative in the fight against hunger.The 5th Annual 'Canstruction' event is in full swing at the Arnot Mall and the winners will be announced Tuesday night. Nine teams from organizations across the Southern Tier create large display, using only food items.
The sponsors donated 1,200 to 8,000 canned goods each. Once the contest is over, these canned foods go straight to southern tier residents in need.
Missy Goetschius from the Food Bank is pleased with the participation this year. She says, "When you think of some of the items that are used n the structure, a lot of that, one can might be a meal for someone. [For example] a Chef Boyardee item or a soup. So, when you look down to the nitty-gritty breakdown of what the structures consist of...it's helping thousands of individuals."
The displays will be in Arnot mall until Sunday, October 27th and you can still vote for your favorite. Click here to vote: http://foodbankst.org/index.asp?pageId=180
