We’re holding a Souper Bowl of our Own!
Release Date - Dec 20, 2013
The Food Bank of Northwest Indiana is holding their first ever “Souper Bowl” food drive from January 6th to February 14th. The food drive is designed to collect cans of low sodium soup for seniors and children. The organization hopes to collect 10,000 cans of soup during the drive.
“This time of year it’s still very cold, and we want to make sure that our most vulnerable have a hot meal,” said Victor Ortiz, Food Procurement Manager at the Food Bank. “With the Super Bowl coming up in February, we figured it was a great way for the community to score a touchdown of our own.”
“Hunger doesn’t end after the holidays are over. It’s a year round problem. Our community has been really great at supporting us in the fight against hunger, and we hope that will continue with the ‘Souper Bowl’ food drive,” Ortiz added.
