Canstruction 2015: 51,000 Meals for Families in Need

Westgroup Designs and Snyder Langston teamed up last Friday to support Canstruction and the Orange County Food Bank. This year the teams who participated collected 82,000 cans of food, or 51,000 meals for the families in need in our local community.

Deft hands carefully steadied cans of tuna, baked beans and chicken inside Anaheim’s large transit station.

The collection of preserved food slowly took shape into a regal lion rising more than seven feet tall.

The public art piece and four other colossal canned food structures crafted by local architecture and engineering firms will be displayed through Sept. 27 at the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center as part of an effort to feed the poor.
