Food Donations Low, Could Impact 'Can'struction Competition

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash-- If you're one of the many who want to take part in this year's 'can'struction competition, listen up.  There's an information meeting this Thursday at 9 a.m. at Columbia Center Mall.

They'll go over how to form a team, and what you need to donate to compete.  The program director says food donations across the board have been running low, but any donations help. 

"The whole theory is it's just a community visible support of helping to fight hunger in our community," says Kathye Kilgore.  "So whether your structure has 500 cans in it, or it has 10,000 you're still working towards that same goal of fighting hunger."

It doesn't cost anything to sign-up.  Program leaders expect up to 30 teams will enter.  All food donations go to Second Harvest.
