They create a three dimensional collage highlighting different styles and cultures around the world.

Hunger in the State of Texas exists from one end of the state to the other: from Amarillo to McAllen: From El Paso to Jefferson. All in varying degrees. Overcoming this challenge takes the effort of all the people of Texas working together to eliminate Hunger. This begins with thinking about the entire state and acting locally. What can we do in our local communities to end hunger? Our CANstruction – the map of the State of Texas – represents the vastness of the state with its contours and the major cities. Our passport is a call for all Texans to rally together by seriously beginning to end hunger in Texas. We are beginning by focusing on Tarrant County and North Texas. This is our Passport: everyone working together to end hunger. Let us begin a new Texas Heritage by enabling our people to not go hungry, thus making it a Passport for all Texans.
