Celebrate the Super Bowl by Hosting a "Souper Bowl"

Super Bowl XLV is upon us! Whether you're rooting for the Packers or the Steelers -- or just watching for the commercials -- you can turn your Super Bowl party into a great event.

Here are a few suggestions from the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC):

If you are having a Super Bowl Party, consider turning it into a "Souper" Bowl Party by including a soup food drive for AFAC. They would especially like cans of low-sodium soup and chili. Their website has a customizable flyer that you can share with your guests.

Also, starting February 28th, AFAC will no longer be providing plastic bags for their clients. The first week this new policy goes into effect, AFAC hopes to provide clients unaware of the change with a reusable bag. Please help them collect reusable bags for their 1,300 client families.

Donations of food and reusable bags can be dropped off at AFAC Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

If you cannot make it to AFAC during these hours, feel free to bring donations to CVN's next meet-up on Tuesday, February 8th, at Tortoise and Hare. We'll make sure they receive all of the donations.
