Souper Bowl VIII 2021

Beat Hunger in Our Communities Jan 17-Feb 7, 2021

Center for Spiritual Living Seattle, Amazing Grace Spiritual Center, and Genesis Global Spiritual Centers invite you to join us in a “Souper Opportunity” to BEAT HUNGER in our communities.

This fun and friendly competition benefits our neighbors in need.  Starting in January and ending on Super Bowl Sunday, the competition is designed to see who can collect the most donations of canned soup and stew.

This friendly competition started in 2014 when Center for Spiritual Living Seattle teamed up with Denver’s Mile High Church, and it’s been a huge success ever since. In 2020, four Spiritual Centers participated and contributed over 25,000 cans of food, bringing our total since 2014 to over 100,000 cans of food donated!

How to Participate
