A Church for All People

Souper Bowl of Caring

Our congregation participated in the “Souper Bowl of Caring” again this year, an event which utilizes Super Bowl weekend in America to mobilize young people to fight hunger and poverty in their local communities. Its vision is to transform the Big Game into America’s largest youth-led time of giving and serving. Young people collect monetary and food donations during the weeks leading up to and after Super Bowl Sunday. 100% of the money and food is then given directly to local charities of the group’s choice.

Started in 1990 at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, the Souper Bowl of Caring has branched out to include schools, businesses and congregations of all faiths. Together, they have raised more than $143 million in monetary and food donations. In 2019, more than 4,500 groups collected over $9 million of food and contributions, a record which has already been broken in 2020.

Our congregation contributed 103 cans of soup and $54 in cash to the Marcellus Ecumenical Food Pantry this year.
