Emergency food programs like City Harvest in NYC currently serve almost 25 million people and that number is expected to greatly increase this year.
Canstruction is an exhibit at the Winter Garden in downtown Manhattan. All sculptures are made entirely from cans of food, and the food is donated to City Harvest afterwards.
Most who use the emergency food programs will be children, women, people of color, people with disabilities and the working poor.
(The above sculpture depicts Sarah Palin's "Bridge to Nowhere")
This one is call "Can Tut."
Teams from architectural and engineering firms compete in competions held throughout North America. Admission is free, but donating a can or two is greatly appreciated!
The Winter Garden is beautiful during the holidays.
A clear veiw of Ground Zero is possible from the platform adjacent to the atrium.
