Score A Victory Against Hunger!

Rally your parish and church youth and team up with IOCC this Souper Bowl Sunday.

Just follow the simple guidelines to lead your youth towards becoming Souper Bowl MVPs!

  • ANNOUNCE that your parish will be a part of the Souper Bowl of Caring, and ask parishioners to bring a nonperishable food item and small monetary contribution to Divine Liturgy on Sunday, February 12.
  • DISCUSS the Souper Bowl with your youth group. Lead them in a discussion on community service and serving people who don’t have everything they need (food, water, etc.). Read the Parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible (Luke 10:25–37) and relate the teaching of “helping our neighbor” with participation in the Souper Bowl.
  • DECIDE to which local food bank or soup kitchen you will donate the nonperishable foods collected on Souper Bowl Sunday.
  • CHOOSE a monetary goal for your parish to reach through the contributions collected for IOCC on Souper Bowl Sunday.
  • COLLECT the donations on Sunday, February 12. The youth should stand at exits with large soup pots to receive the food donations. Other youth can help pass collection trays at the appropriate time.
  • DELIVER the nonperishables to the selected food bank.
  • MAIL checks to IOCC using the Souper Bowl Sunday mailer your parish received, or donate online using this page.
  • DEBRIEF your Souper Bowl experience to reinforce the messages of service and volunteerism with the youth.

Your monetary contribution to IOCC on Souper Bowl Sunday will help people in need across the globe.
