Before Super Bowl LI, there is SOUPer Bowl II. In an unforgettable evening, over 22 favorite local chefs will team up to help tackle hunger, by creating a line-up of delectable soups. Attendees will sample a large selection of gourmet soups. In addition, they will select a carefully handcrafted soup bowl designed by a student from Nease High School or Valley Ridge Academy. The price of one ticket entitles you to these wonderful experiences, but more importantly, it gives you the power to change the life of a child in need.
Precision Door Service of Northeast Florida is a SOUPer Bowl sponsor. Owners, Jason and Ryan Sheppard share, “The SOUPer Bowl is to fund Blessings in a Backpack – a program that sends food home each weekend to children who do not have resources to eat over the weekend. A battle against hunger in our backyard!”
Game Changing Day – The SOUPer Bowl is February 2, 2017 from 6 – 8 pm at Nease High School.
Allen D. Nease High School

A fundraiser to end hunger in St. Johns County Schools. Food! Fun! All for a great cause! All proceeds from the sale of tickets go directly to First Coast Blessings in a Backpack to fund a needy child’s weekend backpack. The cost to feed a child for the entire school year is $100.
Each week Nease High School and Valley Ridge Academy students, as well as other schools and members of our community, purchase, pack and deliver backpacks to hungry children in our community schools. Although Blessings in a Backpack provides hungry children with food, the program’s impact in these children’s lives is vastly more profound.
Student survey results show:
- 78% feel nurtured by their community
- 71% feel they are helping their family
- 60% feel they are less apt to get into trouble
- 59% find it is easier to learn at school
These children need dietary as well as emotional nourishment to improve their quality of life. Blessings in a Backpack is a community initiative that assists these disadvantaged children, ensuring that hunger doesn’t impede their chance to succeed.http://www.firstcoastblessingsinabackpack.com.
