The Souper Bowl of Caring has officially kicked off its 2014 campaign to help feed those in the community and to teach others how to serve.
The national youth-led movement will tackle hunger and poverty by helping hunger relief agencies make up for the drop in donations after the holiday season.
The goal this year is to raise $8 million across the country. The goal in North Texas is $1.3 million. That total can be met with either cash or food items donated.
The campaign will last until Super Bowl Sunday.
For those who want to help, purchase a pre-packaged bag filled with items needed by the food bank. The local participating stores include Albertson, Kroger, Market Street and Tom Thumb. Cash donations are also being accepted.
For more information on donations and getting involved go to the Souper Bowl of Caring web site.
