A Souper Bowl of Caring

Guest Contributor


Our "101 Bowls To Tackle Hunger" was a great success for our 6th "Souper Bowl of Caring" at Mae Edwards UMC. All 101 bowls...designed by Larry Manning/potter...were purchased as a donation for our church's support of Family Promise of Santa Rosa, Inc. We presented Family Promise a check for $460 (Super Bowl is 46 years old this year); and 200 cans of soup for the homeless children and their families. We fed the flock...with 60+ members and guests (the Girls Group Home, just around the corner from Mae Edwards, attended with chaperone and three residents) enjoying 6 varities of soup, sandwiches, yummy desserts, Super Bowl Trivia/prizes and lots of Giants/Patriots gift items. A blessed day for a blessed cause...feeding the hungry.
