Each fall, AIA New Jersey members have the opportunity to donate food and money to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. This Food Bank fights hunger and poverty by distributing food and groceries, providing education and training, and making new programs to help people with low incomes meet their basic needs. As a non-profit organization, they act as the central food and aid distribution center for other non-profits that serve individuals, soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters.

Canstruction combines a unique design/build competition with a great way to help feed the hungry. Competing teams, lead by architects and engineers, showcase their talents by designing giant sculptures made out of canned foods. Visit the national level website at http://www.canstruction.org

Last year, thanks to our sponsors, AIA-NJ and AIA Newark and Suburban, Goya, and Skanska USA Building, we were able to donate $1,791 and 45,000 pounds of food to the Community Food Bank.

Questions? For further information or to donate, please contact the Canstruction Committee Chair, Christy DiBartolo, at 973-290-8544 or [email protected]
