Community invited to participate in Souper Bowl of Caring
The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank invites you to participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring. This event 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, young people take up a collection (many use a soup pot), asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need. They give 100 percent of their donation directly to the local hunger-relief charity of their choice.
In Romans 12:13 we are told: Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. Many local congregations certainly obey that command.
The Souper Bowl of Caring most often benefits local food banks and soup kitchens, but world hunger organizations, denominational missions and other international ministries have also been recipients of Souper Bowl of Caring dollars. Collections can go to the church’s feeding program or the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank.
