Meal Kits for Families in the Foster Care System

Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement of young people working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. In the weeks leading up to or on Super Bowl Sunday, young people take up a collection asking for items of food for people in need.

Our Confirmation class will be collecting donations before and after services on January 20 and 27. Students will organize donated items into meal kits for the Department of Children, Youth and Families. These meal kits will go to bio parents involved with CPS, parents who have their children in trial return home (which means the DCYF still have legal custody over them), and relative caregivers who are in need.

Can you help? See the list below of items needed for these meal kits.

Thank you for helping us serve our local community!
