Sachem East High School capitalized on this week's Super Bowl buzz with a food drive aimed at local families in need.
Dubbed the "Souper Bowl," the charity drive was sponsored by Sachem East’s Students Against Drunk Driving chapter along with State Farm, Youth Serve America and the National Youth Leadership Council, according to the Sachem Report.
“The purpose of the ‘Souper Bowl’ is to encourage students and staff to participate in the fight against hunger,” said Sachem East Principal Lou Antonetti.
The collection receptacles were wrapped in Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers logos so students could drop the canned goods into the bin whose team they're rooting for in tonight's game. The labeled bins also sparked a competition to see which team would collect the most items.
So who won the "Souper Bowl?" The Ravens edged out the 49ers.
The collected food items will be distributed to local food pantries in the Sachem community.
