Disneyland VoluntEARS help Tow Away Hunger with CANstruction of Tow Mater

Can version of Pixar's Tow Mater

Disney VoluntEARS had fun for a good cause at the annual Orange County CANstruction event, where they spent nearly six hours building a Can sculpture of Tow Mater from Pixar’s Cars, out of 5,700 cans of food donated by the Disneyland Resort. This has been an annual event for five years.

The CANstruction event benefits the Orange County Food Bank and takes place every September as part of the Festival of Children at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA, where structures made entirely out of canned foods are put on display.

Disney VoluntEARS created Mater’s main structure from cans of kidney beans, and eyes and pupils from cans of mandarin oranges, evaporated milk, green beans and salmon. In total, more than 20 types of canned foods were used.

The design won “Juror’s Favorite!” Congrats to everyone involved!
