Canstruction on April 3rd at 11:00 AM

On April 3rd, STYP is teaming up with Tioga State Bank for the Southern Tier’s 3rd Annual CANSTRUCTION!

Canstruction® is an international hunger-relief competition where architects, engineers, contractors, and community members compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. The structure we will be constructing this year is Binghamton’s own NYSEG Stadium.

The canned food used in each structure will be distributed throughout CHOW to emergency food programs throughout Broome County including food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community meal programs.

Please email Kyle Nedlik at if you are interested in helping out with construction or staging of the cans.

More information on the event can be found at the links on the following page:

Our structure will be up for a week after the build date for public viewing, so check it out if you can!
