There are a number of well-established noun adjuncts like "baby carriage,"
gas station," "government agency" which may be used as the models for "can
food drive," "L. I. ice tea" and the like.  They are gaining acceptance
although the individual ones like "box set" or "bottle water" may strike us
as novel.
