Creative Food Drive 

When: Sat., Oct. 15, 2 p.m. 2011

A quick Google image search is enough to generate serious enthusiasm for the first annual Creative Food Drive. As with similar competitions across the country, CFD teams will compete to build sculptures out of nonperishable food. Images from other competitions demonstrate a wide variety of themes, including giant light bulbs, rocket ships, pineapples, peacocks, The Simpsons sitting on their couch, and my favorite: a giant Etch A Sketch with a sketched image of a house and tree.

All 15 teams in the Durham contest have committed to collecting more than 500 items, which they'll use to compete, and then will donate to the Food Band of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Hosted by the progressive architecture firm MHAworks and emceed by WUNC-FM radio personality Frank Stasio, the event will also feature live music by from Brett Harris, the Lizzy Ross Band and LiLa. There will also be an abundance of food trucks, along with door prizes and children's activities. The event runs 2–6 p.m. —Meg Stein
