CANstruction Competition Collects Food Donations

Kitchen & Associates Joins
International Community Service Event

CANstruction Competition Collects Food DonationsMonarch Housing Associates has worked with Kitchen & Associates on numerous affordable housing developments over the years including the current Kilmer Homes project in Edison.

For the third consecutive year, our friends at Kitchen & Associates, located in Collingswood, New Jersey is entering the CANstruction Competition and need your help! In order to purchase the THOUSANDS of cans needed to build their can structure, they need to raise several thousand dollars.

As background about CANstruction, each year, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Philadelphia Associate Committee in conjunction with the Philadelphia Center For Architecture invites Philadelphia’s leading architects, engineers, contractors, design firms and schools of design to participate in this unique effort. CANSTRUCTION® is an international community service event, where design teams compete to build structures entirely out of canned food. This year’s event will take place on April 17.

At the end of the CANstruction, all the food collected is donated to Philabundance. In the past 5 years, Philabundance has collected over 175,000 pounds of food for needy families from CANstruction alone.
