2016 CANstruction: Tetris

For nearly forty years, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan has fought against hunger and under nourished communities. Through their many programs and partnerships, Gleaners distributes 79,000 meals a day, averaging 34.5 million pounds of food each year.

Hamilton Anderson Associates believes in the mission and vision of Gleaners, and in an effort to help advance their efforts, will participate in the 2016 CANstruction Donation Event. CANstruction is an event that raises awareness and resources to combat hunger. Partnered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Detroit and Kroger, Gleaners coordinates with metro-area design firms to build canned-food structures to go on display during Midtown’s Noel Night on Saturday, December 3.+

Afterwards, all cans raised go to Gleaners. Since the event’s inception in 1992, more than 25 million pounds of food has been collected.
HAA is excited to participate and work with an outstanding non-profit organization like Gleaners. This year’s theme was “ICONIC” and open to interpretation. What’s more iconic than one of our favorite games, Tetris?
