Souper Bowl of Caring

Posted by Misty Simms, With 0 Comments, Category: Blog,

On Saturday February 6th, select Kroger stores in Lexington will be hosting God’s Pantry Food Bank volunteers for the annual “Souperbowl of Caring” canned food drive. The play on words is intentional as this canned food drive aims to bring awareness to hunger in Central and Eastern Kentucky when food and gatherings for the big game each year, are plentiful. The average cost for a 30 second commercial in the Super Bowl is around four million dollars, which would equal more than 19 million meals to families in need.

We’re asking that on Saturday February 6th, visit one of the participating Kroger stores in Lexington, and pick up a few extra items with your game time shopping list and drop those in the blue barrels provided at store exits. Participating Kroger stores are as follows; Beaumont Centre, Richmond Rd, Tates Creek, W. Lowry Lane, & Euclid. All canned food donated through “Souper Bowl of Caring” stays within the Fayette County Pantry Program, which serves more than 2000 Lexington families monthly, and provides a variety of food for clients to choose.
