Ten teams of Central PA architects, engineers, designers, contractors, and students compete in a design-build event; designing and building delightfully creative structures made entirely from canned goods in the NorthEast corner of the Exposition Center.

With the help of GIANT Food Stores, this event spotlights the need to care for the hungry in our region. The food banks and pantries of Central Pennsylvania benefit from this spectacular show sponsored by the Central PA Chapter of the Society for Marketing Professional Services, The American Institute of Architects, The Society of Design Administration, along with the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Harrisburg.
