The SFU Community Trust once again led a team in this year’s CANstruction Vancouver event – an annual design and build competition that serves as a major fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society (GVFBS). In collaboration with Fast+Epp and HCMA, our team used over 6,800 cans to build Audrey II from the Little Shop of Horrors.
“Feed Me Seymour. If you feed me all day long, I can grow up big and strong.” These words spoken by Audrey II in the campy 80ʼs film Little Shop of Horrors could be echoed by the nearly 5,500* children receiving support from the Greater Vancouver Food Bank each week. *Derived from the 26,500 people that utilize the GVFB each week, with 20% of recipients being children.
