Another ‘Souper Bowl’ season comes to an end

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) – The friendly 'Souper Bowl' competition between Skyline High School and Idaho Falls High School officially wraps up on Wednesday.

Donations began on Jan. 23 this year. The competition was supposed to conclude on Saturday, Feb. 4, but after freezing temperatures shut down schools, they decided to extend the donation period. Tuesday, Feb. 7, was the last day to donate.

Skyline students collected 176,000 donations, $15,000 of that came from cash or Venmo. Skyline's original goal was to reach 100,000 donations, so they far exceeded their goal. Idaho Falls won't have their final count until later in the week.

The Community Food Basket–Idaho Falls heads to Skyline High School on Wednesday and to Idaho Falls High School on Monday to pick up their collections of donated items.

This food drive is completely administered by the students and has been a tradition for many years to help benefit recipients of the CFBIF.

Although the 'Souper Bowl' has come to an end, the CFBIF accepts donations all year long. Click HERE to make a donation.
