Can Castle

Can Castle

Join the fight against hunger.

Each year the Office of Civic Engagement teams up with Student Involvement to host its annual Can Castle Contest. The food drive brings in more than 5,000 supplemental food items that keep our Backpack for Kids program well stocked to serve local children for several months. 

During the contest, student organizations are encouraged to participate by donating nonperishable food items and come together for a couple of hours to construct their best “castle” using their donations. Castles are critiqued by a judge’s panel and recognition is given to the organization who has the best castle design and the organization who donated the most items. For sororities and fraternities, Greek Week points are also up for grabs.

This fun and engaging activity provides an opportunity for students to be educated on the issue of food insecurity in Pike County and actively participate in addressing this need. Food donations from the Can Castle Contest support the Backpacks for Kids program, a partnership between Civic Engagement and Freshman Forum. Students volunteer weekly during the fall and spring semesters to pack bags supplemental food items that are delivered biweekly to youth in our community.
