Souper Bowl Food Drive

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

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 & Distributing:
Hundreds of volunteers will be needed to help sort, package and deliver donations, click here.
