The Souper Bowl of Caring started in 1990 when a South
Carolina Sunday school teacher used Super Bowl parties as a modern-day example
of gluttony when fans eat wings, pizza and chips they don’t need, while at the
same time someone in the same town goes hungry. The class asked everyone
leaving church on Super Bowl Sunday to donate $1 from their Super Bowl party
budget to fight hunger. What started as a small movement has grown to a national
effort to give back on a day of plenty. This effort has already started and
culminates with KUTV’s day-long telethon on January 30, so be sure to set aside
a bit of your Super Bowl party budget to help us continue Fighting Hunger Statewide!
Last year, Utah Food Bank distributed 43.3 million pounds of food (36.1 million meals) via our network of 150 emergency food pantries and agencies statewide. UFB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization recognized by the IRS.
