Texas Youths Tackling Hunger

The Souper Bowl of Caring (SBoC) is a national movement of young people working to fight hunger and poverty in their communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. This year, from January 15 to February 3, many Texas young people will be asking for one dollar or one item of food for people in need,

with 100 percent of the donation going to local hungerrelief charities. This is the first time volunteering for many.

More than 53,000 youths volunteered in 2012, raising more than $4.8 million in Texas, which has the fourth-highest rate of food insecurity in the nation. Their focused efforts ranked them number one in the nation for total donation dollars, which were provided to hunger-relief charities in Texas communities.

Locally, the goal for 2013 is to raise more than 1 million pounds of food for North Texas food banks and local charities. Youth volunteers distribute the donated funds and food directly to the charity of their choice, establishing a bond with that charity and making an impact on hunger through the cumulative effort of thousands working together to fight hunger and poverty.

For more information or to make a donation, call 1-800-358-7687 or visit SouperBowl.org.
