A Souper Effort

Students at Gribbin Elementary School recently participated in “The Souper Bowl of Caring,” the fourth year in a row the school participated in the event. The Souper Bowl is a nationwide food drive that calls on schools, churches, and other organizations to collect non-perishable food items and donate them to a charity of their choice. The event coincides with the NFL’s Super Bowl to bring awareness to the needs of food pantries across the countries, which are traditionally depleted following the holiday season. Gribbin School families donated 305 pounds of food over the two-week collection period. The collected food was donated to the food pantry at Saint Rocco’s Church in Glen Cove. Pictured are some Gribbin School students with the collected food before it was delivered to the church.
