The Souper Bowl of Caring Food Drive has been rescheduled to Saturday, March 1st.
Due to hazardous travel conditions predicted for our area the night before the big game, we felt it best to reschedule the Souper Bowl of Caring Food Drive. Please join us on our new date, Saturday, March 1st, and help with the nations largest youth led food drive.
Souper Bowl of Caring mobilizes local youth to fight hunger and poverty in our communities. Our vision is to create our communities largest youth-led day of giving and serving.
Young people will collect monetary and food donations at our local grocery stores in support of the growing community need. 100% of the money and food is then given directly to our local food pantries to help restock their empty shelves.
Last year, volunteers raised $7,250.00 and over 3,365 lbs. of food!
This year our goal is $8,000.00 and over 4,000 lbs. of food.
