For 66,000 people in and around Houston hunger is one of the most difficult challenges they have to overcome daily. It's estimated 5,000 kids in the Houston area go hungry every single day.
This year the Houston Food Bank is kicking off the Souper Bowl of Caring. Here in Houston local grocery stores compete and join together to help raise funds for the food for the Houston Food Bank.
But the event goes beyond just grocery stores, in 2013 more than 1,000 groups participated in Houston collecting enough food for more than 2.47 million meals for our hungry neighbors.
The Houston Food Bank is hoping this year to raise enough food to provide 2.8 Million meals.
There are several ways you can participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring and make a huge difference in the life of a neighbor in need.
