FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- High schools around the area held a 'Canstruction' event to collect food for the local food bank.
This year's theme is decades. Students collected donations to buy canned goods, and build masterpieces to be on display at Glenbrook Mall. The project teaches kids about community service, and problem solving skills.
"For some of their graduation requirements as well, it's community service and it teaches them the value of doing stuff for other people, I think is a big thing that comes from it," said Kurt Singer, a teacher at New Haven High School.
The creations will be on display at the mall until next Sunday. After that, the food will be taken to Community Harvest.
