United Way of Greater Portland’s second annual United We CAN food sculpture contest turned philanthropy into art Friday afternoon in Monument Square. Over a dozen corporate teams competed in the lighthearted event. Teams were allowed to use props as long as at least 50 percent of their sculpture was comprised of donated items.
