Fun Can Art Event in Sioux Falls

AIGA South Dakota is accepting registrations for teams to participate in
our ‘artistic’ food drive, to benefit Feeding South Dakota. Teams will collect non-
perishable food items and use them to build a sculpture of their choice. The “Can
Art” will be on display at The Washington Pavilion February 16-24, 2013. All food
items will be donated to Feeding South Dakota at the end of the event.
Visit for more information and to register your team.

Art makes a BIG difference in fighting hunger. This is the second year we are
hosting the event. After the first “Can Art” event, we were able to donate 4,787
pounds of food to Feeding South Dakota – that's 2.4 TONS of food that
helped our community! Our goal for the second year is to top that number!  The cost is $25.00 per time, plus canned items.

Scripture reference for sharing with the hungry below...

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. Isaiah 58:6-9
