6th Annual Canstruction

The sixth annual Canstruction Madison event began April 19 at West Towne Mall in Madison. Hosted by Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM), 23 teams from businesses, churches, schools, and organizations around Dane County built giant structures made of canned goods and packaged food and competed for awards, but with a primary goal to help end hunger in the community. This year’s event theme is “sCANning the Galaxy.” After the week-long event, all food is donated to the MOM Food Pantry, one of the largest food pantries in the area, serving Madison, Middleton, and Cross Plains. In 2015, the MOM Food Pantry distributed more than 1.3 million pounds of food. (For information on getting your event featured in the IB Gallery, email jason@ibmadison.com.)
