DALLAS/FORT WORTH –More than 3,340 youth and 280 schools, churches and organizations around the Metroplex have participated in this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring and conducted their own food drives since the January 15th Kick Off. So far, over 569,000 pounds of food and $196,500 have been raised with donations still being reported.
Community leaders Albertsons, Kroger Food Stores and Tom Thumb Food & Pharmacy, local media outlets—NBC 5; CBS 11; TXA 21; Telemundo Dallas; WFAA; 100.3 JACK FM, 98.7 FM KLUV, KRLD 1080 AM, 103.7 LITE FM, The Dallas Morning News and Star-Telegram with support from the Dallas Cowboys have lead the Souper Bowl of Caring Dallas/Fort Worth efforts to tackle hunger in North Texas.
