Castle of Cans collects more than two tons of food

The 9th Annual Castle of Cans Food Drive at Colorado School of Mines collected more than two tons of food for needy families, Nov. 14.

Fourteen student organizations donated 4,239 pounds of food to be donated to 39 families in the Colorado School of Mines community and the Golden Food Bank.

The annual event harnesses the engineering spirit of Mines students, where cans of food are stacked into creative structures. This year canned good sculptures resembled the Great Sphinx and pyramids of Egypt, the Roman Collosseum, a lighted 'M' on Mount Zion and a Pac Man game.
