Souper Bowl of Caring

Souper Bowl of Caring

Feb 2, 2014 - 12:00 AM


Hunger and poverty have a negative impact on individuals and the communities in which they live, yet there is joy in serving and giving to those in need. Why not use Super Bowl weekend, a time when people come together for football and fun, to also unify the nation for a higher good: collecting dollars and canned food for people in your community?

Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement of young people working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, Churches, Schools and Service Clubs take up a collection (many use a soup pot) asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. Incorporating soup bowls or pots reminds people that even a bowl of soup is often hard to get for those in need. Get involved in this simple, yet powerful movement of caring.
