For the second year in a row, St. John’s Ancaster has collected soup to coincide with Super Bowl Sunday in the football world (February 4th this year).

We call it Souper Sunday.

The collection starts a few weeks ahead and when complete is taken to St. Matthew’s House Hamilton to help replenish their food shelves.

Over the past two years, St. John’s has provided more than 2,500 cans and packages of soup mix for the food bank located at St. Matthew’s.

The collection is spearheaded by our Social Justice Action Committee.
