Students at the Sugar Loaf United Methodist Church participated in the world-wide event known as the “SouperBowl of Caring.” This mission began in 1990 when a youth group in Columbia, SC wanted to help fight hunger and used the Super Bowl as the inspiration to kick off this mission. That first SouperBowl had 22 churches participating and generated $5,700. To date, the mission has raised over $132 million in cash and food items.
Youth in the Sugar Loaf United Methodist Church have been participating in this mission since 2006. That first year they raised $80 and collected 75 items of canned food. This year they collected 158 cans of food and $427, which was split between the Warwick Food Pantry and the Chester Food Pantry. To date, the students have raised over $3,700 and collected over 1,200 canned goods which have been donated to local food pantries.
