Today was “build day” of our first-ever campus Un-Canny Competition! Seven student teams created sustainability-themed structures out of boxes/bottles/jars of food (no cans!) to raise awareness of local hunger. All food will be donated to Media Food Bank. Why no cans allowed? Our local food bank notified us that they already get so many cans of food, what they really need are the other items to round out their distribution - ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, cereal, coffee, tea... items typically not donated. #psubwuncanny #mediafoodbank #fighthunger #sustainabledevelopmentgoals #sdg2zerohunger @psubrandywine
