Canned Food Creations & Food Drive flyer
You’re invited to watch and contribute as student teams compete to build the most amazing snow-person creation out of canned food on Tuesday, Dec. 4 in the University Library Lobby.
The building begins at 2 p.m. and is expected to last until 7 p.m., with creations remaining on display until Thursday, Dec. 6 at 5 p.m. The festive fun will be featured in this year’s HSU holiday video.
You can vote for your favorite creation by donating canned food to the specified “ballot boxes.” 1 can = 1 vote. The winning student team will receive $150 to designate to a campus organization.
Forever Humboldt is sponsoring the event by donating the first 2,000+ cans to build the snow-people.
All donated food will be given to the Oh SNAP! student food pantry. The program currently has a need for healthy canned soup. Other preferred canned food items include: meat (chicken, fish), stews, chili, beans, fruit (in water).
