2010 Annual Review
One simple prayer “lord, “l ord, even as we enjoy the super super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without even a bowl of soup to eat.” This prayer inspired the first Souper Bowl of Caring collection in 1990, which totaled $5,700 for food banks in South Carolina.
cOllected since We BeGan Since 1990, more than $71 million has been collected in dollars and cans for hunger-relief organizations across the United States. 100% of the money collected was
donated directly to the charity of the participantsâ€™ choice.

“I had no idea that my life was about to change.”
“This has been the most empowering experience for me.”
Ashley has raised thousands for people in need in her area and built relationships with soup kitchens and homeless shelters. She shares her knowledge of the local hunger issue through newspaper articles and radio and television interviews.
“During a presentation I was giving a woman recalled that growing up, she and her brothers often fought over one can of tuna,” Melissa says. “The woman said there were no organizations to provide service to them and they felt no one cared.”
“Thanks to Souper Bowl of Caring and my position on National Youth Advisory Board, I have found what I am called to do,” she says. “Once you open your eyes and see that there are people in need in your own community, that’s where the helping starts. No matter what age you are, where you come from, what you do and don’t have, anyone can make a difference.”
Melissa made it her personal goal to raise awareness of the many hardships families are facing, and how each one of us can make a difference. “I have seen firsthand how Souper Bowl of Caring has enriched many people’s lives, including my own. Each day I am learning how to better serve Souper Bowl of Caring so I can help many struggling families across the United States.”

hats Off tO tO texas!
Though usually in competition, the leading grocers in the major markets of Texas are following the lead of Americaâ€™s youth involved in the Souper Bowl of Caring by working together. These grocers have initiated an annual three-week food drive, which has raised $12 million in cash and food over the past four years for hunger-relief agencies throughout their state.
