YVC Canstructure Contest

What is CANSTRUCTURE? Canstructure is a structure building competition to fight hunger. Teams of Berks County youth, mentored by artists, architects, engineers, or contractors compete in a contest to build incredible structures made entirely from cans of food.  Each team is responsible for holding its own food drive prior to the event to collect the cans for its structure and all canned food will be donated to the Greater Berks Food Bank following the competition.

Youth Volunteer Corps of Reading held its 2nd annual Canstructure competition on March 16, 2019 at the Berkshire Mall. This year's theme was Connecting People. Over 170 students on 15 different teams participated which ultimately resulted in 22,922 lbs of food being donated to the Greater Berks Food Bank!
