Tackle Hunger with Souper Bowl of Caring
Souper Bowl of Caring is a national event that started in 1990 with a small group of communities realizing they could foster youth involvement in charitable works, and specifically to tackle hunger, by tying it to the energy and hype of Super Bowl Sunday. People could donate $1 or 1 can and 100% of the proceeds would go to charities in the community.
Clifton’s participation in this event began around 1997 when St. Peter’s Episcopal Church’s youth group began doing a small drive to help benefit St. Peter’s Haven. Over the years, various individuals and student groups have participated by donating or taking up collections with 100% of the proceeds going to St. Peter’s Haven.
This year we are looking to expand past our own small efforts to help with the increase of families receiving food. Collections may be taken up by anyone, but youth organizations are especially encouraged to participate in the week leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.
St. Peter’s Haven will be taking in all donations in relation to Souper Bowl of Caring on Saturday, February 11th from 9AM – 1PM and Super Bowl Sunday, February 12 from 10AM – 2PM.
Any group that needs to drop off their donations before those dates can do so by making arrangements with St. Peter’s Haven through firstname.lastname@example.org. Schools that need pickup can use the same email address to make arrangements.
Those that cannot participate for the annual Souper Bowl of Caring event such as spring sports teams can plan a Tackle Hunger Challenge when it is more suitable to their schedule.

Help us Tackle Hunger so that everyone can enjoy The Game.
