High schools kick off annual ‘Souper Bowl’ food drive

Idaho Falls and Skyline High Schools are gearing up for the annual “Souper Bowl,” which helps support local food banks.

Skyline High School kicked off the “Souper Bowl” with an assembly on Friday, to help students get excited for the next month’s canned food drive. The students played games and were told how they could get involved, like collecting items in neighborhoods or outside grocery stores.

This year, the school hopes to collect 75,000 cans.

“My favorite part is seeing how the community interacts,” said Jack Snyder, the Skyline High School student body president. “We go out to businesses and they would love to donate, they wait for it every year. We also go out and we see community members that buy us doughnuts because we are standing outside a store. They know our cause and they would like to contribute to it every year.”

Students will be outside Broulims in Ammon, Walmart on Utah Avenue in Idaho Falls and Albertsons on Broadway. They will be there on Jan. 25, and Feb. 1, 2, 8 and 9.

The school says it has collected more than 1 million cans over the past 10 years.
