Name: PensaCan 2018
Date: September 28, 2018 - October 5, 2018
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Florida Northwest will partner with Manna again this year for PensaCan – a competition where architectural firms create impressive structures made entirely out of full cans of food. Following a week-long display of the structures and voting, all food is then donated to Manna for distribution to the hungry of Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The event is hosted by Cordova Mall – A Simon Mall. Food structures will be built at Cordova Mall in the common area between Dillard’s and Ross on Thursday, September 27, and will be on display through Friday, October 5. A panel of judges will vote on structures on Friday, September 28, at 11 a.m., in categories such as Best Meal Award, Best Use of Labels Award, Structural Ingenuity Award, Juror’s Favorite Award, and Honorable Mention. The 2018 judges are Pensacola Fire Chief Ginny Cranor, WEAR ABC 3’s Laura Hussey, and Cat Country 98.7’s Brent Lane. The public may vote for the People’s Choice Award September 28 through October 5 at www.mannahelps.org. Participating architectural firms include Dalrymple | Sallis Architecture, STOA Architects, Bay Design Associates Architects, Sam Marshall Architects, Artisan’s Architecture, Quina Grundhoefer Architects and ASD|SKY.
