Nimitz High School was proud to host the kick-off for the North Texas Souper Bowl of Caring along with guests from Albertsons, Tom Thumb, Kroger Co., Market Street, the North Texas Food Bank, Tarrant Area Food Bank, the Texas Youth Advisory Board, and local news and radio stations.

Together with the Irving Schools Foundation, Irving ISD students are helping tackle hunger in the community by collecting food and raising awareness about the needs of students and families. If a student isn’t eating nutritious food, they can’t learn to the best of their ability.

Souper Bowl of Caring hopes to raise $2.2 million for local hunger relief in its 2020 campaign. The mission of the Souper Bowl of Caring is to transform the Super Bowl into a nationwide movement inspiring people to give locally and make a collective impact on hunger.

What if everyone watching the game could give a dollar or one can of food for hunger relief in our country? Today that would be over $100 million and would help feed over 40 million food-insecure Americans.

Last year, over $10 million was raised in the form of cash and non-perishable food. To participate this year, conduct a food drive, volunteer, buy pre-packaged groceries or make a cash donation at over 200 participating Albertsons, Kroger, Market Street or Tom Thumb store locations throughout North Texas. One-hundred percent of the donations benefit local area hunger-relief charities, including the North Texas Food Bank.
