(KSL News) -- A contest to help Utah's hungry has just been CANNED, so to speak.

Nine teams of architects had 24 hours to design and build structures made entirely from canned foods.

'Canstruction' Under Way at Salt Lake Library

Some of this year's favorites included "Peas on Earth", using 34-hundred cans; and "Olene Can", which won "Best use of labels."

The "Canstruction" creations are on display at the Salt Lake City Library for a few weeks.

All of the 16 thousand cans used will go the Utah Food Bank.
