Souper Bowl

Help Hearts for the Homeless® change the game and tackle hunger.

 

What has a bigger impact than a trio of 300-pound linebackers bearing down on a quarterback?

You!

Souper Bowl Drive Banner

Your impact changes lives when you huddle up to participate in Hearts’ first Souper Bowl Drive and help lead us to victory. Now, more than ever, our community needs our help. In 2023, homelessness was up by 35 percent in Erie County — the largest single increase in over a decade.

Hearts’ Souper Bowl Drive is a way for us to work together to fight hunger in our community leading up to the Super Bowl football game on Sunday, February 11, 2024.

Host A Souper Bowl Drive

Do you belong to a group or church that would like host a Souper Bowl Drive? It’s easy to participate and here’s how you do it:

  1. ANNOUNCE that your group or church will be a part of Hearts Souper Bowl Drive, and ask your members to bring non-perishable soup to your location through Sunday, February 11, 2024. 
  2. DISCUSS the Souper Bowl Drive with your members. Lead them in a discussion on community service and serving the poor and homeless. Relate the phrase, “City of Good Neighbors” with participation in the Souper Bowl Drive.
