Join us as we partner with Manna for PensaCAN 2021! The event is hosted by Cordova Mall - A Simon Mall.
PensaCAN is a competition where teams create impressive structures made entirely out of full cans of food.
Following a week-long display of the structures (and posters with images of digital designs) and voting, all food is then donated to Manna for distribution to our neighbors in need in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.
Food structures will be built at Cordova Mall in the common area between Dillard’s and Ross on Thursday, September 30, and will be on display through Friday, October 8.
A panel of judges will vote on the structures on Friday, October 1, in categories such as Best Meal Award, Best Use of Labels Award, and Structural Ingenuity Award.
You can get involved too! People’s Choice Award votes will be accepted online at www.mannahelps.org October 1-8!
Come out to Cordova Mall and support our local architects and build teams in the fight against hunger!
