Deadline near for Hopelink's Can Madness competition
Businesses have until Feb. 26 to sign up for Hopelink’s fifth annual Can Madness competitive food drive, with the first weigh-in set for March 7.
The drive matches businesses in weekly competitions to see which can bring in the most food. Each week, the winning business in every pairing or “bracket” advances to the following week.
Last year, 25 competitors in Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Shoreline and Seattle collected more than 27,000 pounds of food for Hopelink food banks.
To ensure that businesses of all sizes are able to compete on a level playing field, the competition uses a scoring system that divides the number of pounds of food collected each Friday by a denominator that reflects the size of the business.
This year’s winner will be crowned April 4.
