PensaCan: Demolish Hunger, Design Hope!

PensaCan 2022 is now accepting build teams!

Join us as members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) of Northwest Florida partner with Manna for PensaCan 2022! The event is hosted by Cordova Mall - A Simon Mall.

PensaCan is a competition where architectural firms create impressive structures made entirely out of full cans of food. This year, teams from businesses, organizations, civic clubs, schools, or any other group is welcome to participate! And, digital designs are welcome too!

If your organization or business, civic club, or school group thinks this looks cool (because it is!), then sign up today! 

For additional builder information and to register your team please visit:

Following a week-long display of the structures (and posters with images of digital designs) and voting, all food is then donated to Manna for distribution to our hungry neighbors in need in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Food structures will be built at Cordova Mall in the common area between Dillard’s and Ross on Thursday, September 29, and will be on display through Friday, October 7.

A panel of judges will vote on the structures on Friday, September 30, in categories such as Best Nutrition Award, Best Graphics Award, and Structural Ingenuity Award.

You can get involved too! People’s Choice Award votes will be accepted online at September 30 - October 7!

Come out to Cordova Mall and support our local architects and organizations in the fight against hunger!
