Thousands of canned goods collected at HISD schools during Souper Bowl of Caring

For the past three weeks, schools across HISD have been participating in activities related to the Souper Bowl of Caring, a national campaign that encourages people to collect food for the needy.

At Stevenson Middle School, for instance, students gathered over 2,300 canned goods and non-perishable food items for the Houston Food Bank, while cheerleaders and football players from Lamar High School competed in a friendly relay race dubbed the “Grocery Dash and Pass” at a local supermarket to raise awareness.

And students at West University Elementary School collected a whopping 28,000 pounds of food to help feed the hungry (read related article in the Houston Chronicle).
