Art for the Hungry to kick off Sunday at Willowbrook Mall
Northwest Assistance Ministries' (NAM) annual Art for the Hungry event will take place Sunday, Feb. 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Willowbrook Mall.
The competition is open to all individuals or groups, including businesses, congregations, civic organizations, schools, etc., interested in completing a challenge to build a sculpture out of at least 1,000 non-perishable food items. The sculptures will be built at the mall the evening of Feb. 27 and will be on display for two weeks before being dismantled on March 13. The theme for 2011 is “Out of this World” and all food sculptures must reflect that theme.
At the end of the two-week display period, awards will be given for People's Choice and Judges' Choice. The total number of votes cast for each sculpture determines the People’s Choice award winner. Voting is done by making a donation in a collection box next to each sculpture, with each $.25 donation counting as one vote. The Judges Choice award is given to the most well-constructed and creative sculpture, as determined by a panel of judges.
All funds and food will be donated to NAM's Food Pantry. As an added bonus The Feinstein Foundation will provide a proportional match for all funds and food collected.
“Art for the Hungry” kicks off NAM’s “Survival Over the Summer” food drive to restock its Food Pantry for the summer. Last year, the program helped feed more than 5,000 area families.
Willowbrook Mall is located at 2000 Willowbrook Mall.
