NEW PORT RICHEY
Display is a can-do project of engineering and creativity, and you can pick the favorite
Feats of edible engineering will be on display this week at the "Canstruction" competition at the West Pasco Government Center, 7530 Little Road. Several organizations have created sculptures from hundreds of cans of food — all of which eventually will go to the Volunteer Way food bank. The public is invited to check out the displays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and anyone who brings a can of food or $1 may cast a vote for their favorite structure. The winner of the "People's Choice Award" will be announced at the end of the week. For information, call the Volunteer Way at (727) 815-0433 or visit www.thevolunteerway.org.
