The California State Capitol has a new addition this holiday season – a 5,800 pound can replica of the State Capitol.
The replica is the creation of Canstruction – a national charity that showcases colossal structures made entirely of full cans of food. It will be on display near the East entrance to the Capitol through December, after which the cans of food will be donated to local charities.
Originally created for the CGA Strategic Conference this past September, the Capitol replica was disassembled, shipped to Sacramento and reconstructed by CGA staff on Nov. 7.
Food cans for the project were donated by Chicken of the Sea, Juanitas Foods and Unified Grocers, Inc.
“This is a terrific opportunity for CGA to showcase the fantastic work our industry does in helping the less fortunate,” said CGA President Ron Fong. “A special thank you goes to those companies donating product and time to make this happen.”
