I've been fortunate to be a long time volunteer at the Food Bank, celebrating 10 years there last April. It's been wonderful to see the many unique ways that the Food Bank supports the community including the recent development of their Fresh Approaches food centre allowing them to offer fresh produce to community partners.
Canstruction is one more way in which the Food Bank connects with the community and it is happening now. This is a "unique, international event engaging designers, architects and engineers to use their talents to help those struggling with food insecurity." This event has been running locally since 2008 and since then has raised enough food and funds to provide over a million meals to our community!
You can see what's happening with Canstruction at Conestoga Mall now until March 17th. Join in the fun by voting for your favourite structure! #365ofgoodWR
