This Jeep Wrangler Is Made Almost Entirely Out Of Food Cans

In case you weren’t aware, July 1 is Canada’s birthday, and to commemorate “Canada Day”, Fiat-Chrysler’s local arm had a bunch of young students build a Jeep Wrangler (mostly) out of food cans.

It took the students, who were between 12 and 18 years of age, some 12 hours to piece together more than 4,500 cans of food into a life-size replica of the Jeep SUV.

The “canstructed” Wrangler was on display today at Vancouver’s waterfront Canada Place, but it will soon be deconstructed as the canned food will provide more than 3,120 meals to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society as part of a donation from FCA.

“This unique Canada Day Canstruction project not only serves as a tool to raise awareness for issues of hunger and poverty in our country, it also demonstrates to the students involved how critical – and fun – subjects like science, technology, engineering and math can be,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO of FCA Canada.
