BATTERY PARK CITY — It’s a food fight against hunger.
Teams of designers will put their talents to the test in a battle to make the most creative sculpture — out of hundreds of cans of food.
The annual Canstruction food drive, now in its 24th year, brings 26 massive, playful sculptures to Brookfield Place for the friendly November competition.
Past designs have included a giant beehive, artist Jeff Koon's Balloon Dog and the Staten Island Ferris wheel, all painstakingly stacked together from cans.
When the show closes, the sculptures will be dismantled and all the cans — more than 100,000 in all — will be donated to City Harvest to help feed the hungry.
Visitors to the display are also encouraged to bring canned food donations.
Canstruction food drives take place across the country and in Canada. Winning teams also take home prizes for their creative designs.
"Canstruction" will be on display in the Brookfield Place Winter Garden at 230 Vesey St. from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily from Nov. 3 through Nov. 16.
