HISD students serve on Souper Bowl of Caring Local Youth Advisory Board

More than a dozen HISD students are serving as Local Youth Advisory Board (LYAB) members for this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring. Souper Bowl of Caring is a national youth-led movement that utilizes the energy of the Super Bowl to collect food items and donations for local charities that work to fight hunger.

All cash and food donations collected between January 18 and February 7, 2016,  are donated back to the local community. The vision is to turn the nation’s biggest weekend of football into the largest weekend of giving and serving.

Working behind the scenes of this movement are young adults who are passionate about tackling hunger. Local Youth Advisory Boards exist in various cities across the nation to encourage high school students to lend their energy to the mission of Souper Bowl of Caring.

At their first meeting on in November, Houston LYAB members brainstormed ways to engage their peers in generating a large collection for the Houston area. After creating a game plan for this year’s campaign, they joined in an afternoon of service at the Houston Food Bank.
