District Attorney's Office Wins "Most Innovative" in the County's Stone Soup Can Sculpture Competition

A seven-foot-tall replica of the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse created out of more than half a ton of donated food won top honors in a county-wide contest this holiday season. District Attorney's Office employees, led by DDA John Mifsud, constructed the building out of food collected in an Office-wide effort.

According to competition officials, the DA's Office contributed more than 1,300 pounds of food to the drive. But how many food items is that? Members of the Office donated 188 individual servings of oatmeal and 104 of ramen; about 36 boxes of baking mixes, potatoes, cereal and stuffing; 51 boxes of macaroni and cheese; more than 1,000 cans of vegetables and soup that Mifsud deemed "regular-sized" cans, and about 470 cans of food in other sizes; at least 10 pounds of pasta, grains, dried beans, and rice; and about 100 items in miscellaneous categories, including a gallon-sized jar of maraschino cherries.
