Cheer On the Food Pantry for This Year’s Souper Bowl of Caring!

No matter which team is your favorite for the upcoming Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, 2013, we all win when we root for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry (WIFP) during the Souper Bowl of Caring drive!

WIFP is encouraging everyone in the community to collect monetary donations and much needed food items to stock the pantry shelves during The Souper Bowl of Caring which is a national endeavor to use the energy of the Super Bowl to mobilize youth in a united effort to care for people in their local communities who are hungry and those in need. Super Bowl weekend – the first Sunday in February – can be nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving – if we all participate!

The WIFP leadership and volunteers are asking businesses, churches, and other organizations to offer special promotions to their clients and members to spark donations. In addition, families and friends who host Super Bowl parties are encouraged to ask their guests to make financial donations or bring a couple of cans of food to the get-togethers on February 3, 2013, Super Bowl Sunday.   Most needed food items can be seen on the WIFP website:  http://www.wifoodpantry.org/wi_mostneededfood.html.

Food items collected can be dropped off at the WIFP Drop Off Box located on the lower level of the Americal Civic Center during open hours or at the Town Hall Drop Off Box. (Be sure that you don’t donate food that has expired!) Any financial donations can be mailed to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry at P.O. Box 1624, Wakefield, MA 01880.
