On the last day of the drive, teams had 90 minutes to construct the donations into sculptures. In total, the company donated 3,118 pounds of food.
Photos of the sculptures were featured on social media and on the company Intranet so employees and followers on social media could vote for their favorite.

The team receives $250 to designate to a non-profit of their choice, as well as a certificate. “Ex-ing Out Hunger” built by the team at Wagman’s Dinwiddie, Va. office took second place.
