More than 8,000 cans of food used in huge Christmas display at City Hall

Pasadena’s City Hall has been transformed into a larger-than-life Christmas scene, thanks to Kroger and the students at the Dr. Kirk Lewis Career & Technical High School. The display includes Thomas the Train, a snowman, a Christmas tree, several gingerbread men and more.

And, amazingly, it’s all made out of food.

In total, more than 8,000 cans of food were used for the “CANstruction” project. The students began collecting food at the school, but the project was able to expand beyond everyone’s expectations when Kroger generously offered to donate more than 7,000 cans of food.

Under the instruction of David Scarcella, engineering and robotics students created the design using CAD software and mathematics skills. Art students and organizations and clubs within the school helped create custom wrappings for each can and wrapped them all by hand.

Students assembled the scene at Pasadena’s City Hall (1211 Southmore), where it will be on display throughout the holiday season.

In early January, the students will return to take down the scene, and Kroger will donate all of the canned goods to the five Pasadena food pantries who were part of the city’s annual Can Do Food Drive.
