Help kick off the Souper Bowl of Caring

As the Executive Director of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank I am in the business of feeding people. Like many people on the Kenai Peninsula, I am passionate about giving back to my community and making a positive impact in the lives of others.

As hard as it may be to believe, the problems of hunger and poverty exist right here on the Kenai Peninsula and we often feel that as regular citizens, we can’t make a difference. But I write today to tell you that through the Souper Bowl of Caring, everyone on the Peninsula can help care for our neighbors in need.

Will you please help me invite all schools, congregations and businesses to take up a collection on or near Super Bowl Sunday? Every dollar collected can be donated directly to a local charity feeding hungry residents. The Souper Bowl of Caring will help show us the impact our individual efforts have made as they keep a national tally and share it on their website.

Everyone can get involved and find more information at Thanks for helping me share this wonderful idea. I will keep you posted on the results after Super Bowl Sunday!
