Citywide Competitions are annual events where design industry professionals compete building structures made out of full cans of food which goes to feed the hungry.

Teacher and Class



   Junior Events are for students or youth groups to use math, design skills and art to create structures made out of canned food  while teaching community service. 




University Events engage young adult students in art/design and problem solving skills to create canned food structures which are donated to their local foodbank.
