We are excited to announce the 2019 Theme: ComiCAN!

April 5th – 12th | Southgate Mall

What is CANdemonium?

CANdemonium is a design/build competition benefiting our local food bank. Local business teams are paired with mentor architects and engineers to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food.

Where does CANdemonium happen?

Southgate Mall has graciously hosted this event for several years. Teams build their canned structure along the walkways of the mall.

Who can participate in CANdemonium?

CANdemonium is a great team-building and marketing opportunity for businesses, membership associations, school groups, fitness clubs, dealerships, congregations, and anyone who wants to make a big difference together for local families living with the threat of hunger!

What are the rules of CANdemonium?

What does Missoula Food Bank & Community Center do with all the food that is used to build these structures?

All of the food used in CANdemonium goes directly to our food bank! In 2018, over 17,500 pounds of food was donated to our food bank. This keeps the shelves in our store stocked for several months!

I still have questions. Who can I speak to at the Food Bank?

Contact our Events & Marketing Coordinator, Amanda Ceaser, by email or phone at 406.549.0543, ext. 214.
