LIVINGSTON - Seven sculptures at the Livingston Mall made entirely of cans will be donated to a local food bank.

Each structure was built by a team of architects and have beach themes ranging from a house on pilings made of baked beans to a skeeball game and lifeboat.

On Sunday, the sculptures will be taken down and all of the food will be sent to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

"We are going to donate this year over 32,000 cans of food and over 30,000 pounds of food, plus funds are being raised as well," says Ron Weston, of the American Institute of Architects. "So it's a great cause supporting the Community Food Bank of New Jersey."

The sculptures will also be judged and the teams given various rewards such as the "best meal," and the "best use of labels."

This the 15th year for the event.
