Boise Rescue Mission Ministries is holding its 7th Annual March to End Hunger Food Drive Campaign and Can Castle Contest. This is an opportunity for any business, church, group or family to collect cans of food and other non­perishables to help feed less fortunate men, womenand children in the community. Each participating organization may use the items they collect to build a Can Castle creation and compete in the contest. There will be a Facebook voting event, and a Golden Can Trophy winner will be named.

Beginning March 1 and ending March 31, participants throughout the Treasure Valley begin collecting food. Can Castle photos must be submitted by midnight on March 31. Voting will take place on Facebook April 2­4. The Can Creation does not have to be a castle, so  participants may be as creative as they like. If a participant would only like to collect food and not be a part of the Can Castle Contest, that is okay as well. Contact Kelsey Verbanac at 208­-343­-2389 for delivery of a collection barrel and Can Castle information pack.

Last year, 10,117 pounds of food were collected during the March to End Hunger Campaign.Leading up to the summer months, when giving is leaner, this food is essential to serve Boise Rescue Mission Ministries' homeless guests in Boise and Nampa.
