NK competes in CANstruction for 20th consecutive year

CANstruction is an international competition that challenges teams of architects, engineers and contractors to build sculptures made entirely out of unopened cans of food. At the close of competition, all of the food used in the structures is donated to families in need.

For this year’s theme of “Favorite Video Games,” our design “Blocking Out Hunger” captured the transition of Tetris from a classic 2D game into the modern 3D version popular today. Built at the Morris Museum, NK’s sculpture used 4,200 cans and 3,000 boxes of cereal. In addition, through the generosity of our donors, we were able to raise another $5,000. All food and money will be donated to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Our entry was recognized with an Honorable Mention award.

Over the years, NK’s involvement in CANstruction has contributed a total of 71 tons of food to help in the fight against hunger. Thank you to all our friends who helped support these efforts through their donations, and special thanks to all NK staff members who were part of our design/build team.
