LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Students at Ivy Tech are using their creativity to help feed their community.

The Canstruction canned food drive started as a class project, but one student saw the need to keep the project going.

Ivy Tech Canstruction

Students were encouraged to collect canned food items over the past few weeks to use as building materials.

Today in the Grand Hall on the Ivy Tech campus groups used their materials to "can-struct" an original "can-creation."

The project has made a positive impact on all who have been involved.

"So, to be able to do something like this. Simple and still fun, to help people who are struggling to make their daily meals is, I mean, an honor more than anything," said Student Organizer Wendy Ndichu.

The Canstruction drive has gathered more than 800 cans over the past few weeks.

After the "can-creations" were judged they were demolished and the cans were donated to Mid-Land Meals here in Lafayette.
