Jolene Benedetti’s office wasn’t meant to hold two grocery store aisles’ worth of canned food, but for the last two weeks she had no choice. Not that she’s minded, though. In Newport Harbor High School’s seventh annual canned food drive, the community service coordinator’s office was inundated with nearly 7,000 cans of food, two to three times more than what they usually get. All the food this year is going to victims of the fires that scorched Southern California for more than a week in October.

A tuna dragon took shape in Costa Mesa on Saturday morning. Inside Surfas Culinary District at the South Coast Collection, a team of about six people stacked cans of chili to make the outer wall of a castle where a dragon made out of tuna cans would eventually perch. A chocolate sword would complete the display. "It's the sword of indulgence," Rebecca Kaminsky joked. She and a group from Building Trades Network in Santa Ana were one of three teams practicing building structures made from thousands of cans of food.

For the past five years, Temple Bat Yahm member John Bernstein has spent the day after the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur overseeing the distribution of several tons of food, which the congregation amasses each year in a large diesel truck outside the temple. “For the Jewish faith there is the requirement of ‘sedakah,’ essentially being your brother’s keeper and taking care of those who aren’t as well off as you are, and this food drive is really a part of that,” said Bernstein, who oversees the food drive.

COSTA MESA — Roger Mouri got one relief early Saturday morning at the first Orange County Canstruction competition. When his team was done building an intricate structure out of food cans, it got to scatter cans all over the floor. That’s because Mouri’s display was based on “Wall-E,” the recent Pixar smash about a trash-compacting robot who does his best to clean up Earth after the world’s population has fled the planet in a spaceship. Mouri and the other volunteers from Disneyland recreated Wall-E and his robot love interest, Eve, out of hundreds of food cans — including a pair of Ortega chile cans for Eve’s beady blue eyes — and then, to finish the scene, they dumped their remaining supply in piles around Wall-E’s outstretched claw.
