Souper Bowl of Caring: Easy, Simple SL Project for Students

Learn, Serve & Give through the Souper Bowl of Caring and Change the Game!
January 17-February 13, 2010

Learning about hunger in their own community can be a very powerful lesson for students.  It is especially effective when that lesson is tied to a simple act of service that allows them to make a difference! 

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a way to teach this life changing lesson, while joining the efforts of your students to those of others all across the country.  100% of your students’ collections and service go directly toward impacting their local communities.  However, when you report your results, the world is able to see the cumulative impact of many small groups who committed to doing their part.

Over the past 20 years, more than $60 million in cans and cash has been raised and donated to charities in the U.S. through the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Join the movement that unites Americans in compassion and service and fights hunger around one of our nation’s most indulgent weekends.

Get Started Today.  It's Easy!

  1. REGISTER.  Visit  and register to receive a free Resource Kit to help promote your event.
  2. LEARN & COLLECT.  Sometime between January 17 and February 13, 2010, lead students in learning about poverty and organizing a collection of money and/or canned foods in their school or community.
  3. REPORT.  Once you finish your collection, report your total to the Souper Bowl of Caring online or via phone.  Reporting ties your collection to all the others and helps measure the scope and scale of the movement, while drawing national attention to the issue of hunger.  
  4. DONATE. 100% of your collection should go directly to the charity of your choice in your own community. Give your cash and/or cans to any nonprofit that provides food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, or help for the hurting.
