Almost 4,000 cans of food was collected for the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry (RAFP) at the recent CANtastics event. The theme this year was Hunger Is No Fairy Tale. The canned-food structures were taken down this past Saturday and trophies were awarded.
Most Cans Used (to build their structure)
United Methodist Youth Fellowship – “Rapunzel’s Tower” – 1,065 cans
Ascension/Ministry Health Care – Jack & the Beanstalk “Taking a Giant Stomp on Hunger”
Pelican Elementary School – “Shrek out Hunger”
RAFP Executive Director Guy Hansen thanked all the team members and everyone that voted for their favorite structure with cans of food, adding that while all the team members enjoyed building and displaying their structures, the best part is that the food generated at this event will be shared with area families in need.
