About Us

For over 30 years, the Souper Bowl of Caring movement has been inspiring people across the nation to tackle hunger in their local communities.

We coordinate efforts to tackle hunger through our digital platform of fundraising services created to support food charities large and small. Mobilizing grassroots resources including churches, schools, civic groups and caring individuals, this movement has created over $193 million worth of support that stays completely local.

Over the last three years alone, thousands of groups collected over $25 million in dollars and food donations for hunger-relief charities across the country. Over that period, our organization took $1 specifically donated to our mission and created over $18 for local food charities.

Our Vision

Driving a youth-inspired nation-wide movement to organize communities to give locally and make a collective impact on hunger.

Our Mission

Uniting All Communities to Tackle Hunger

Our Story

In 1990, a simple prayer: "Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat" was delivered during a church service at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC.

Core Initiatives

We endeavor to create awareness and action so all food charities have critical resources to feed those in need at all times.
