Brevard Catholic Schools Host Can-gineering Food Drive

BCS Can Food Drive LogoBrevard Catholic Schools is hosting a Can-gineering Food Drive Festival on April 12, 2014, 4-10 PM.  At the Can-gineering event our Catholic school students will build canned food sculptures from donated canned foods received from our nine Catholic schools and parishes throughout Brevard.  The canned food sculptures are designed around the theme of: Catholic Schools—Serving our community.  Engineering our Future.

The Festival will be located on the site of Melbourne Central Catholic High School’s Stadium and will feature live entertainment from nine Catholic Schools and local musical groups and bands. Many student activities and organized sports will take place.  A variety of delicious food and cuisine will be available through area restaurants and food vendors. At the end of the evening, the unique and innovative canned food designs will be deconstructed and transported to Catholic Charities and parishes’ food pantries in need throughout Brevard County.

These food pantries throughout Brevard are experiencing severe deficits of donated food supplies.  Today, over 16% of Brevard’s residents are food insecure which means that they have to choose between buying food or paying bills.  The need to restock our food pantries is critical, but you can help us make a difference.

You are invited to sponsor and/or attend the First Annual Brevard Catholic Schools Can-gineering Food Drive Festival.  Or you can help by making a canned food or monetary donation beginning March 1st – April 11 and bring your donation to your nearest Catholic School office.
