Meeting venue ballroom or your office space
Consider same space you would use for your group’s meal + open floor space for game board
The goal of this activity is to create awareness of food insecurity and work to fight local hunger…while being creative, competitive, and having fun! Working in teams, participants compete in a “ballroom-sized board game” in order to earn food items they ultimately use to build a CAN-structure. Teams roll the dice, move around the board, and answer themed trivia questions to earn canned food items. Once a team gets enough correct answers and 125 food items, they get to work building a structure out of their earned materials based on a theme provided. While there are winning teams based on performance during the program, the real winner is the local Food Bank and the community it serves!
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.
