Monday, January 10, 2022

Souperbowl-Poster-Image.pngHere in Delaware County, thousands of individuals and families are at risk of going hungry. Hunger and food insecurity has a negative and lasting impact on children and families. The Delco Souper Bowl of Caring is fighting a battle against big numbers.

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!
