Canned Castle Competition

2016 Competition

Fraternities and sororities at Villanova University participated in a unique canned food drive today. The fraternities and sororities collected so many cans they were able to make them into “can castles.” Each fraternity and sorority chose a theme for their castle. This event is part of Greek Week, which aims to promote unity within the Fraternity and Sorority Life community.

This year, 3,507 pounds of canned goods were collected! The canned goods were donated and transported to North Light Community Center in Manayunk to replenish their Food Cupboard as part of our NOVAL (North Light Villanova Alliance) program.
