Food bank helps CANcel hunger

Posted: Monday, February 18, 2002

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank is sponsoring another CANstruction food drive. Area civic organizations, businesses, corporations, churches, youth and school groups and individuals are invited to create sculptures out of canned and packaged food items. Sculptures can be set up at the Peninsula Center Mall Feb. 23-24 and must be completed by Feb. 25. The sculptures will remain on display at the mall through March 2 and pictures of all entries will be featured at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank booth at the Village Fair March 2 at Soldotna High School.

Prizes will be presented to sculpture designers during an awards ceremony at 4 p.m. March 1. Sculptures will be judged for the following categories: the CAN-Do Award for most cans and packages used, the Ton-O-Tin Award for the most pounds of food used, the best AlasCAN theme for creativity, the Kids-CAN-Too Award for the youth, the Judges' Choice Award for creativity, and the People's Choice Award by popular vote.

Prizes will be presented at an awards ceremony at 4 p.m. March 1.

All food items will be donated to the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank and distributed to needy families through the peninsula.

For more information, call the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank at 262-3111.
