You still have until February 3 to help those struggling with hunger through the Super Bowl of Caring.
So far this year, the Greater Houston community has collected more than $1.5 million towards the $2.5 million community goal. The community can still help reach that goal through Super Bowl Sunday.
There are several ways you can help out. When planning for game day activities local groups, businesses or individuals can still register, collect, report and donate at TackleHunger.org. Shoppers can also purchase pre-packaged groceries or make a cash donation at over 200 participating Central Market, H-E-B, Kroger, Mi Tienda and Randalls locations.
The Souper Bowl of Caring in a youth-led movement of schools, community organizations, congregations and individuals coming together to help "tackle" hunger and poverty in the community.
“Souper Bowl of Caring started nearly 30 years ago with 22 churches collecting $5,700 in Columbia, South Carolina. Since then, this youth-led movement has expanded to include all 50 states and has collected over $143 million for local charities,” said Alison Reese, Executive Director of Souper Bowl of Caring. “Our history shows, that one bag or box, one can, one dollar or even one hour of volunteering can quickly add up and make a tremendous and lasting impact in our local communities.”
