“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday 27 teams of architects, engineers, and developers came together at the National Building museum to build giant sculptures out of canned food to bring awareness to those in our nation’s capital that don’t have enough to eat. Afterwards, all of the cans are donated to the Capital Area Food Bank. Canstruction DC is sponsored by the Washington Architectural Foundation and Society for Design Administration, and has donated more than 250 tons of food to the Capital Area Food Bank.

The sculptures are open to the public from Nov. 20-27th, and “votes” can be cast in the form of cans donated at the site, or via an online donation here.

This is a great way to help our neighbors during this Thanksgiving season, and I’d be very appreciative if you could post the information on your site to encourage people to visit. Entry is free to view the sculptures, and the National Building Museum is located at 401 F St NW, Washington, DC 20001. This year’s theme is “Movie Night” and there are sculptures representing blockbusters such as Star Wars, Ghostbusters, and Sharknado.”
