Mario and Luigi, a peacock, and an apple core are helping feed the city's homeless.
Canstruction New York and City Harvest teamed up for the annual Canstruction design competition this year, where design teams of architects, engineers, contractors, and students create large-scale structures entirely out of canned foods.
In its 22nd year, Canstruction New York features 27 teams and their unique sculptures -- ranging from a subway station, to a dog, to Pixar's Wall-E and Eve -- all sending out the message to end world hunger.
They are on view to the public from Nov. 6 to Nov. 20 at The Winter Garden and Lobby at Brookfield Place. After the exhibit is over, the sculptures will be dismantled and the cans will be donated to City Harvest for those in need.
Admission is free, but visitors are asked to bring a can of high quality food to the exhibition's collection station in an attempt to surpass the record 91,000 pounds of food donated during the 20th annual competition.
The structures will also be on display at Grace Building, One Liberty Plaza, and 245 Park Avenue.
