Congrats to Bergen Tech student Henry Baquerizo and his team who competed in the Canstruction Competition at Garden State Plaza. Canstruction® is an international charity competition where teams compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the competition all of the food is donated to local food banks.

In 2020, Bergen County was estimated to have experienced a 71% increase in food insecurity, totaling over 103,000 individuals who did not know from where their next meal was going to come.
