Rachel’s Table Teen Board Holds Untraditional Food Drive


Example of a "Can-struction" structure from the website www.canstruction.org, a charity which fights hunger and holds "can-struction" design competitions.

SPRINGFIELD – The Teen Board of Rachel’s Table is holding a food drive to help the agency feed the hungry. But after they deliver the food to the soup kitchens, shelters, and food pantries, the teenagers will use the cans and boxes to build an artistic structure, called a “CAN-struction.”
The teenagers will be building their Can-struction at 7 p.m. on Wednesday May 25, at the Springfield Jewish Community Center. All are welcome to come watch them create their structure, and to learn more about hunger in our community and what the public can do to help.
Donations of non-perishable food (no glass, please) can be dropped off through May 24  at any of the following sites: Congregation B’nai Torah, Temple Beth El, Greenwood Center, the Longmeadow Community House, Storrs Library, Wolf Swamp School, Williams School, Longmeadow High School, Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy, and the Rachel’s Table office. Rachel’s Table is a project of the Jewish Federation of Western Massachusetts and WWLP-TV22.
For more information, please contact Shira Atik, Special Projects Manager at Rachel’s Table, at satik@jewishwesternmass.org.
