Have additional questions about Tackle Hunger, our Souper Bowl of Caring event, or finding a Charity of Choice to support?

What is Tackle Hunger? Why did you change from being called Souper Bowl of Caring to Tackle Hunger?

Hunger is a year-round challenge and we must Tackle Hunger all year long to support our nation's large network of food charities, both large and small (see where they are near you at our Tackle Hunger Map. The Souper Bowl of Caring event is just one of the programs we support to aid local food charities.

Tackle Hunger is what we do. The Souper Bowl of Caring event is one way we accomplish our mission uniting all communities to Tackle Hunger.

Souper Bowl of Caring is our signature event which has been uniting communities to tackle hunger for over 30 years. It inspires care and compassion for neighbors in need. By working together to #TackleHunger, our Souper Bowl of Caring event can demonstrate how collective efforts make a significant impact for our neighbors in need. Check out ABOUT US or HISTORY page to learn more of who we are and what we do.

As of 2022, over $174 Million has been generated through Tackle Hunger programs. Our signature Souper Bowl of Caring event has been the primary source of impact across the nation benefiting thousands of local charities. Download our Community Report to find out more.

Registered Tackle Hunger participants receive a packet of FREE resources in the mail to help guide your collection and opportunities to stay connected during the annual campaigns through newsletters, local events and social media. Once registered, report your team’s success to be added to the National total, share stories, pictures and inspire others. It costs nothing to participate in this nationwide movement to tackle hunger.

REPORT your collection and be counted towards the National Total. You can do this in several different ways:

Then DONATE 100% of your collection directly to your Charity of Choice.

Your collection counts! Each collection reported, whether small or large, shows the cumulative effort of thousands of groups working together across the country to #TackleHunger and #ChangetheGame, while having a significant impact in local communities.

The National Total is comprised of cash donations and non-perishable items collected by each participating group. These are both reported through self-reports of groups hosting in-person events that they take directly to the charity of their choice and through the total donated through our Tackle Hunger Map. Since formulas vary across each state, we keep it simple and value each non-perishable as one dollar.

Souper Bowl of Caring relies on donations from caring people like you and community partners to help grow this movement, maximizing every dollar donated for administrative costs. To learn more view our Community Report. A gift of any size can go a long way as each dollar donated to us created over $18 for food charities in 2021. DONATE today.

Check out our TEAM STORE for a variety of merchandise including our new branding and our classic styles. Please allow a minimum of 2-weeks for delivery.

In addition to collecting donations, Tackle Hunger encourages groups to volunteer at their Charity of Choice or Community Partner during their campaign and anytime. We have lots of ideas on our volunteering webpage. Also, feel free to check directly with participating charities for availability to host groups and individuals, age requirements, restrictions and guidelines. Help us by uniting YOUR community to tackle hunger and make sure no neighbors go without soup in their bowls.

Yes, if you choose to DONATE to Souper Bowl of Caring as your charity of choice, you can make a tax-deductible donation to help support administration costs, enable us to provide FREE resources to participating groups, attend hunger-relief and youth conferences and build the Tackle Hunger Map program benefitting food charities across the country. For every $1,000 Souper Bowl of Caring receives we are able to generate $18,000 for hunger-relief charities across the nation just last year.
