2016 Souper Bowl of Caring

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Community Harvest has been participating in the “Souper Bowl of Caring” since 2001. Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement that began on Super Bowl Sunday in 1988 in South Carolina when Pastor Brad Smith shared a simple prayer, “Lord, as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat.” Originally a youth-based program, now people of all ages have collected more than $50 million through the Souper Bowl of Caring to benefit local charities.

On or near Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, 2017, several area churches, schools, and civic organizations will again collect donations and then give 100% of their collection to Community Harvest. By using this weekend as a time to help the hungry, many youth in our community will learn about the reality of hunger in their own neighborhoods as they turn one of the nation’s universal days of celebration into an opportunity to care for those in need.

Short video clips and additional information can be found at Community Harvest can provide announcements, soup pots, and even volunteers to visit your parish or school and help with the collections. Please feel free to contact Faith Barbato at 330-493-0800 to participate or to gain more information.
