Ambassador groups looking for a unique opportunity to help local
food pantries beyond just the holiday season? If so, check
out the Texas 4-H partnership with Souper Bowl of Caring!
Souper Bowl of Caring is an
organization founded 30 years ago by youth with a vision and
passion for service to others. Souper Bowl of Caring uses the
timeframe around one of the nation’s largest sporting
events, the Super Bowl, as a tool to feed families
throughout the state. Groups throughout the state will join
forces during January 14 – February 3, 2020 to
collect food donations and/or monetary donations to donate to a
local food pantry. All efforts benefit LOCAL families who utilize
LOCAL food pantries.
All efforts will be organized at
the local level using the “Playbook” linked below. Once
organized, 4-H youth will solicit donations at local retail
sites, club meetings, neighborhood drives, or other avenues to
collect donations which will be provided to a local food pantry
of your choice. No donations will be sent outside the county….all
efforts are LOCAL so you are helping the
people in your county who are in need.
