Hunger and food insecurity is a global issue, where over one billion people around the world do not have enough to eat. One out of every six children in the US will go to sleep hungry tonight and millions of families rely on their neighborhood food bank or pantry for basic food needs.

The goal of this activity is to create awareness of food insecurity and work to fight local hunger by donating food, as well as messages of encouragement, to local food pantries for distribution.

Working in teams, participants answer trivia questions in order to earn food items they ultimately use to build a CAN-structure. Once a team gets enough correct answers and 144 food items, they get to work building a structure out of their earned materials. Ultimately, the group votes on the most creative structure to win the challenge. Teams then pack food items and write messages of encouragement for the beneficiary organization.

To close our events, we invite a representative from the beneficiary to express their gratitude and raise awareness on the impact their work has on the community. This establishes a direct connection to the cause and organization your team is supporting.

This program can be enhanced by having an assembled “CAN-structure” for viewing by participants upon their arrival. This structure acts as inspiration for the activity in which they are about to take part and, of course, all of the food used is also donated.
