Hope West Des Moines Souper Bowl Food Drive

Feb. 10-11, 2024

Souper Bowl Food Drive

Help us stock the shelves of every food pantry in our community!

Here’s the game plan:

  • Bring your nonperishable food items (you can tackle the suggested grocery list for the most needed items) to Hope during the weekend of the Big Game, or with you when you come to Hope beginning Feb. 5!
  • Financial donations are also accepted in-person via check (noting “Souper Bowl Food Drive” in the memo field) or online here

Please remember to check expiration dates on your donations as expired items cannot be donated to pantries. For safety reasons, please, no glass items.
