Eye-catching canned goods sculptures will appear in a new location this month. Canstruction moves from Pearlridge Center to Kāhala Mall Oct. 5 to 13. Honolulu members of the American Institute of Architects compete with designs using cans of high-demand items—tuna, meats, chicken—which are later donated to the Hawai‘i Foodbank. “The thing that makes it unique is the high-quality canned donations in bulk,” says the Foodbank’s Beverly Santos, compared to the odd mix of clean-out-your-pantry items that usually roll in. Over the past 13 years, the event has brought in 394,805 pounds of canned food, enough for 310,870 meals.
