 Souper Bowl of Caring is a movement that began back in 1990 when a youth group decided to try to make a difference for hunger and poverty. Since that time, Souper Bowl of Caring has grown to be worldwide and has collected more than $100 million.

Our youth will be joining the cause this year and inviting us all to contribute at least one crisp dollar bill into our soup pot collection vessels. Our collection will take place on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7. Your donations will be given to Samaritan’s Kitchen.
