RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - It is the 19th annual CANstruction exhibit at Meadowood Mall. There are over 24,000 cans taking shape at the mall, and all will be donated next Monday. Twelve teams came together Wednesday in the fun competition.

From goods that create the Loch Ness monster, a lunch box, and even Godzilla, judges will have great options when it comes to deciding on who the winners are of the CANstruction Reno Design and Build Competition.

They are all on display until this Sunday, the 15th. People are encouraged to vote for their favorite and all voting proceeds go right back to the food bank.

Spring is a time when goods can run low at the food bank. Jocelyn Lantrip with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada mentioned the impact this exhibit has on the community.

“It’s important and we need this food right now. We have pretty empty shelves at the food bank and this is 24,000 cans of food! We’re excited to get it back into our warehouse on Monday and get it sorted and out to our neighbors that really need our help,” Lantrip said.
