Make it a Souper Sunday - Help tackle hunger in Central Florida!

comments | Read Comments


While millions gather around the country to watch the most anticipated sporting event of the year, there are thousands of families right here in our community who struggle from one meal to the next. To them, Super Bowl Sunday is just another day.

Starting January 1 through February 3, you can serve the less fortunate around you by helping to replenish the pantries of the Christian Service Center. All food and basic hygiene products collected and donated are distributed through the Christian Service Center’s core programs to feed those who need immediate assistance.

Join us! Register your church or business at SouperSunday.org and make your office or church a designated collection site. Simply ask everyone to bring in at least one can of soup or other nonperishable food item to your location on or before Sunday, February 3 (day of Super Bowl).

FUN WAYS TO PARTICIPATE:

Themed Days

  • Collect specific food on certain days. For example:
  • “Beef Up Your Soup”- meaty soups, plus canned tuna, Spam, etc.
  • “Veggies & Greens”- you get the picture. Healthy stuff like green beans, corn, etc.
  • “Kids’ Stuff”- cereal, juice boxes, apple sauce, fruity snack packs, infant formula, etc.

Food Fight

  • Friendly competitions to see who collects the most cans.
  • Challenge friends and your business partners to join in via Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtag #SouperSundayOrlando
  • Great for internal office teams, or youth church groups & Sunday School classes.

Double Donation

  • Ask your employer to give $1 per canned good or per pound of food.
  • Employers can match the cash donations of employees.

Game or Movie Night

  • Host an office party during a broadcast football game, or a church movie night, with admission being one can of food.
  • There’s lots of opportunities for this with the NFL playoffs happening in January.
