It?s CANtastic time again
Now is the time to begin building a team to build a structure out of food. The annual Rhinelander Area Food Pantry’s CANtastic event will be March 7 at the Rouman Cinema. The competition is open to any group or organization (clubs, schools, Scouts, churches, businesses, etc.) in the Rhinelander area and financial assistance is available to help teams purchase the necessary food for their structure.
CANtastic is the event that combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed the hungry in our community. Teams use canned or boxed foods to build their structures, based on a theme. The theme this year is, “Historic Buildings.”
The creations will be on display and judged on criteria including creativity, complexity and the use of color. At the close of the competition, prizes are awarded for Judges’ Choice, People’s Choice and Most Cans Used Following the Theme.
All of the food used in the structures will then be donated to The Food Pantry for distribution to area families in need. In 2014 RAFP distributed over 568,000 pounds of food to area families in need,
Teams should begin planning now and register their structure plan soon. Contact Guy Hansen at 715-282-5810 or go to www.rhinelanderareafoodpantry.org
