CANstructure: AmeriCAN Food
Introducing Team AmeriCAN Foodies, a group who are passionate about ﬁghting
hunger in our community and country! For the CANstruction Anchorage 2023
event, we are building a mouth-watering cheeseburger, a refreshing cola, and
crispy fries dipped in ketchup.
As the team worked on our structure, we couldn't help but think of the staggering statistics of hunger in America. An estimated 10% of people were food insecure in 2021 and an even higher percentage in 2022. Team AmeriCAN Food is determined
to make a diﬀerence.
Our structure is not just a fun representation of a classic AmeriCAN meal but also a symbol of hope for those in need. The cheeseburger is made up of a variety of cans including olives, an assortment of vegetables, tuna, and garbanzo beans. The refreshing cola is also packed full of yummy vegetables. The fries are a crispy golden brown made from CANs of peaches, and a pile of delicious ketchup is made ﬁttingly from CANned tomatoes.
The team worked tirelessly to create this impressive structure, consisting of thousands of CANs assembled with precision and care. The cheeseburger stands tall and proud, enticing all who pass by to join the ﬁght against hunger.
Join Team AmeriCAN Foodies in our mission to combat hunger in Alaska and beyond. Remember, every CAN counts, and together we can make a signiﬁcant diﬀerence our communities.
