 WHO PARTICIPATES?

Faith Groups

Souper Bowl of Caring was originally founded by a church youth group. Even though the movement has expanded outside the faith community, we continue to be fueled by those coming together to worship, loving thy neighbor, and making a difference in local communities and across the country.

Schools

Holding a collection at your school can be a great way to get students excited around the Big Game. There are many life lessons that can be learned by uniting youth together for a common cause, through collecting and connecting with their neighbors in need.

Businesses

Do you work for a company looking to expand its giving? Hosting a collection or volunteering is a great way to motivate employees by team building, providing internal incentives while giving back to your community.

Charities

Every penny, dollar, or food item collected by Souper Bowl of Caring participants goes directly to hunger-relief charities like yours! Click here to learn how you can benefit as a receiving charity to replenish food and fund resources at the beginning of the year.

Youth

Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-inspired and youth-led movement which provides many opportunities to build upon leadership skills, philanthropic endeavors, and network with their peers on hunger-related issues within their local communities.

Donate to Souper Bowl of Caring

One of the fundamentals of Souper Bowl of Caring is that everything collected by our participants during their campaign is donated directly to the charity of their choice in their local community. Because of this, we rely on donations from caring people like you to help us continue our mission to unite communities and empower youth to tackle hunger. A donation to Souper Bowl of Caring is an investment: For every $1 you donate, $30 is generated for charities in local communities across the country.
