Join us on January 19th from 12:30-5:00p.m. for a special all-ages volunteer event in honor of the MLK National Day of Service. Our usual age-restriction will be lifted for the day, and families of all ages are invited to take part in the fun!
During this session, volunteers will be packing produce into family-size bags for distribution to Food Bank clients through the Mobile Pantry program and our partner agencies. Tours will be offered and refreshments available. Come for as long as you like and have a little fun while giving back to the hungry in our community.
The 12th Annual CANstruction competition benefiting the Food Bank of Northern Nevada will be held at Meadowood Mall March 4-8, 2015. Again this year, teams will work with design professionals to create a structural masterpiece using canned food products.
The build-out of the structures will take place over a 12-hr period on Wednesday, March 4 with judging and awards ceremony on Thursday. People's Choice voting will begin on Friday, March 6 and will run through the weekend. Visitors to Meadowood Mall can cast a vote for their favorite CANstructure at the Guest Services desk for the cost of $1.
All proceeds from People's Choice voting as well as all canned food items used in the structures will be donated to the Food Bank at the end of the event.
