Since 1990 this simple prayer has been spoken: "Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl Football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat" is inspiring a youth-led movement to help hungry and hurting people around the world.
This prayer, delivered by Brad Smith, then a seminary intern serving at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC, gave birth to an idea. Why not use Super Bowl weekend, a time when people come together for football and fun, to also unify the nation for a higher good: Collecting dollars and canned food for the needy?
Donations collected for the Souper Bowl of Caring are given to a local and a global cause.
Please remember to bring your dollars and coins on Super Bowl Sunday and add it to the soup pots in the narthex on your way out!
