Lion’s Pantry To Host ‘Canstruction’ Exhibit Starting April 11

This week, the Lion’s Pantry will host an exhibit featuring student-made structures built from packaged food to highlight Penn State’s fight against food insecurity.

The annual event combines both art and student food pantry. The structures built from packaged foods are made by students in the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, the Schreyer Student Council, and Lion’s Pantry itself. All featured student-made structures will be donated back to the pantry. 

The exhibit will be open for viewing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, April 11, and Tuesday, April 12, in Room 131 in the HUB. The Lion’s Pantry will also host a reception at 6 p.m. on Monday in the HUB’s Flex Theater that will be fit with free food, too.

“It’s crucial that we as a university come together to better serve our students,” said Taylor Dorsett, the Lion’s Pantry’s incoming president. “In doing this, we shed light on a very prevalent issue of food insecurity at Penn State, and work towards reducing stigma simultaneously.”

Those who attend the reception or the exhibit’s viewing hours are encouraged to bring a non-perishable, non-expired food item to donate. Anyone who attends the exhibit or reception can enter a prize drawing and potentially win gift cards to local restaurants, Penn State gear, and more.
