Souper Bowl

Souper Bowl

Souper Bowl Food Drive

It’s game time… and we’re not just talking football!

All food donations at Hope Ankeny will be used to support The Cupboard and other area food pantries.

Here’s the game plan:

  • Run to your local grocery store for nonperishable food items (you can tackle the suggested grocery list below for the most needed items) and bring your donations with you when you come to worship on Souper Bowl weekend – Feb. 2 & 3.
  • Financial donations will also be accepted the weekend of Feb. 2 & 3 via check or online (both require noting "Souper Bowl Food Drive" in the memo field)

Please remember to check expiration dates on your donations as expired items cannot be donated to pantries.

Food Collection: Saturday & Sunday, Feb. 2 & 3

Sorting & Packaging: Sunday, Feb. 3
Unpacking and sorting groceries will take place in the main hallway across from the worship center.
