Souper Bowl of Caring
February 2019
The ”Souper Bowl of Caring” is a flexible and easy to organize event, making it a great way for your group or organization to give to those in need. Examples of “Souper Bowl of Caring” projects include asking your customers or employees to donate either $1 or one can of soup, hosting a Soup/Chili Cook Off Event, or throwing a Super Bowl Party and asking attendees to bring nonperishable donations as “admission” to the party. This collective effort on and leading up to Super Bowl Sunday creates hunger awareness and helps to feed the 95,000 individuals in northwest Pennsylvania facing hunger. If you plan on participating or need assistance in planning a Souper Bowl of Caring event, please contact Tori at 814-459-3663 x 104 or tpursell@nwpafoodbank.org.
