SUNY Oneonta students took part in the 8th annual Canstruction event April 8 at the Southside Mall, where teams made up of local business employees, community members and students used design and problem-solving skills to create canned food structures and give back to the community. Teams built sculptures using thousands of unopened cans of food. Participants had to use cans with original labels, and they couldn't use glue or anything that would affect the cans during construction. The structures will stay up all week so that the community can see them. Canstruction is a national charity committed to ending hunger one can at a time. The drive collected 6,336 cans this year and in eight years has totaled more than 32,000 cans. The donations will be delivered to 15 local food pantries when the displays are taken down Sunday.
