Civic clubs and private businesses came up with a clever competition as a way of donating food for charity. Teams competing in the Canstruction contest at Vintage Faire Mall in Modesto used cans of food as building blocks.

Among the entries were a bottle of milk and cookies, a globe and a Battleship game. At the close of the exhibit on Sept. 30, the food will go to The Salvation Army.
