Rochester, N.Y. - All kinds of fun and funky structures were constructed Saturday, and they were all made from canned food.

The 11th annual building competition, presented by Buckingham Properties, is a benefit for Foodlink, which helps to feed those in need in our community.

This year, about ten teams put together sculptures that celebrate play, like a giant Connect Four board and Big Wheels.

Since the competition started in 2006, organizers say it has resulted in over 330,000 pounds of donated food for local families.

You can check out the creations at the Strong National Museum of Play until November 17th.
