Souper Bowl of Caring - An Opportunity to Alleviate Hunger

Each NFL Super Bowl Sunday, many people host or attend parties with abundant food, friendship, and fellowship. At the same time, over 1 billion people around the world go hungry.

On Feb. 6, Super Bowl Sunday, please join more than 2,000 Lutheran youth groups to do something to change all of that. Learn how to be involved at this ELCA link.

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a youth-led ecumenical and grassroots movement that unites youth under a single cause: to end hunger. Collectively, this movement raised over $10 million for hunger-related charities in 2010. And ELCA Lutherans raised nearly $800,000! But that’s not all. Youth across the country also collected more than 4.5 million pounds of food and provided countless hours of service.

Please forward this email to your youth leaders and others involved in world hunger projects. Forward this message to a friend
