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 & individuals living with the threat of hunger in our community!

I am interested in registering for CANdemonium. Where can I find more information?

Please contact Events & Marketing Coordinator Claire Bonino-Britsch at or 406.549.0543, ext. 214 for more information.

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 2022, over 19,000 pounds of food was donated to our local food bank. This helps keep high-quality, healthy food on the tables of families & individuals experiencing food insecurity in our community.

I still have questions. Who can I speak to at the food bank?
