Local rivals work together to fight hunger
SOUTH BEND — Long-time rivals, Saint Joseph High School and Marian High School came together to support the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County’s annual Hunger Bowl.
Now in its 6th year, the Hunger Bowl is a one-day food drive where students from Saint Joseph High School and Marian High School bring in food and monetary donations to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County’s food pantry. The school with the largest cumulative donation per student is awarded the annual Hunger Bowl trophy during halftime of the Saint Joseph versus Marian football game.
The Hunger Bowl has provided more than 14 tons of non-perishable food items for the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s Client Choice Food Pantry over the last five years. These food donations have helped serve the more than 50,000 residents of St. Joseph County who utilize the society’s food pantry each year.
