Leket Israel, a food rescue organization, in conjunction with the Ra'anana Municipality , are hosting Israel's first Canstruction exhibition, open from Tuesday May 5th through Saturday May 9th at Park Ra'anana.

Canstruction is a non-profit organization with canned food art exhibitions in over 150 cities worldwide annually. At the end of each event, the food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.

Approximately 50,000 cans will be used to build the structures in Park Ra'anana: a giant watermelon, an open refrigerator, and a Leket food collection and distribution truck. Visitors are welcome to bring canned food donations to create additional structures at the site.

 “The main goal of the event is to raise awareness about the importance of food rescue, minimizing food waste and giving back to the community. We are hoping that through the art, individuals and families will leave this exhibition with a greater appreciation of these critical issues,” said Joseph Gitler, Leket Israel Founder and Chairman.
