14 Billion Meals Needed - 2021 Souper Bowl of Caring

Souperbowl-Poster-Image.pngIt's 2021!.  It's estimated that our country will need 14 billion meals to feed those facing food insecurity this year.  That means the Souper Bowl of Caring has never been more important than now in tackling hunger in local communities across this country.  Delaware County is no different.  The need is higher that ever due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It's simple to participate the Delco Souper Bowl of Caring food drive and it can make a world of difference for your friends and neighbors.  Delco Souper Bowl of Caring efforts have been adjusted for the pandemic, so please help in one of the ways listed below.

Logo_GIF_image.gifCovenant members provide both leadership and muscle for Springfield's Souper Bowl of Caring, a massive food drive in February during which food donations are collected from local households, then sorted, packed and shipped to local food pantries.

In 2010, churches and civic organizations in Springfield collected over 22,000 food items. In 2011, we collected over 24,000 food items. We actively strive to improve collection rates as well as civic participation each year.

We want to do even better this year! Please help those among us who are less fortunate than we are by joining the Souper Bowl of Caring Team at Covenant Church. Thank you so much!
