Souper Bowl of Caring

Posted: Updated:

Super Bowl Sunday isn't just about football. Some QCA residents spent the day giving back to the community.

The "Souper Bowl of Caring" took place at St. Ambrose University.

Dozens gathered in the Cosgrove cafeteria, bringing donations for those who often go without.

Organizers said, with millions of dollars spent on advertising and promotions during the game, Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect day to remember the less fortunate.

They said they hope the event reminds people to think twice about those who are hungry as they enjoy the big game.

"The Super Bowl is classically a day that we eat a whole lot of food and get together with our families, and so it's also an opportunity for us to reflect on people who maybe don't have anything to eat today or maybe don't have a home to celebrate in," said Molly Gabaldo, president of Ambrosians for Peace and Justice.

Donations made at the event will go to the Sisters of Humility food pantry.
