United We Can is canned food sculpture competition that benefits local food pantries, and afterwards the food is donated to local food programs.  MMCCU’s Stephanie Rasmussen is a member of the Leadership Marshfield group spearheading this fundraiser. Last year, MMCCU was excited to win in several categories!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the following dates:

  • March 1-17, 2023:  Build Dates
  • March 17, 2023:  Entry Submission Deadline
  • March 20-27, 2023:  Facebook Voting
  • March 28, 2023:  Winners Announced

Each team will build a sculpture of non-perishable food items in their workplace or location.  Sculptures must be at least 50% non-perishable food items; food items cannot be altered nor can labels be removed; and food items must NOT be expired.  Teams who will be building larger sculptures can contact Festival Foods or Pick ‘n Save one week prior to building and they will pull your food together for you.

Our participating food pantries provided the following wish list:  canned carrots, canned white potatoes, canned mixed vegetables, mayo/Miracle Whip, rice, rice mixes, broth, chili, stew, saltines, salmon, jelly, gravy, and tomato paste.  Whenever possible, if these items can be used for sculptures it would be greatly appreciated!

Food collected during United We Can will be distributed to:  Soup or Socks, St. Vincent de Paul, and United Way’s NOW Program.  Monetary donations can be made on the Soup or Socks website:

Photos will be posted on the Marshfield Area United Way Facebook page for voting!  There will be several awards given out to the winners, including Fan Favorite (251 items or more), Fan Favorite (250 items or less), Tallest Sculpture and Sculpture with the Most Items Used.
