Again, more than 56,000 cans and other non-perishable food items were used by this year’s Canstruction teams. And with cash donations included, more than 60,000 meals have been provided through this fantastic event. There is still time to see these great structures – and to vote on the People’s Choice Award – today and tomorrow on the first and second floor of RED Development CityScape (First Street and Washington). You are also encouraged to bring a canned food item or two to help the food bank in its mission to fight hunger in Arizona.
