After a year on hiatus as we relocated our headquarters, we are excited to announce that the applications for the 2014-2015 National Youth Advisory Board are now available!
Each year Souper Bowl of Caring selects a group of high school students (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) from across the nation to serve in a leadership position, learning about service and philanthropy while lending their voices to our mission and leading their own communities in the fight against hunger.
NYAB requirements include attending two mandatory meetings organized by Souper Bowl of Caring at its headquarters in Houston, TX. The youth also serve as spokespeople for the media and act as ambassadors for the organization, sharing Souper Bowl of Caring with others in their communities while offering ideas on ways to continue growing the movement.
"Having a National Youth Advisory Board just makes sense," said Melissa Daigneault, Communications and Food Drive Coordinator for Souper Bowl of Caring. "Souper Bowl of Caring was led 25 years ago by one, small group of young people and NYAB allows this tradition to continue."
Daigneault says she knows this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to be a part of a national organization that has raised more than $100 million for food banks, soup kitchens and other charities across the country. Students will have opportunities for decision-making, leadership, travel and training.
"I am proud to be fighting poverty and hunger nationwide through Souper Bowl of Caring," said Katlyn Riggins, a past NYAB member. "This organization lets me fulfill my passion for helping people in need."
To get involved, please apply or share this information with an outstanding young person today. To learn more, visit tacklehunger.org/nyab.

Try Something Different! These Participants Are Going For The Extra Point With Their Unique CollectionsPosted Oct 4th 2016 10:11amMost of us who know about Souper Bowl of Caring can bring to mind the iconic idea of a collection: a group of young people holding soup pots, collecting money and canned goods on the Sunday of the Big Game. It's a simple idea that's easy to replicate whether you're at a place of worship, school or business. However one of best things about Souper Bowl of Caring is how unique you can make your collection to meet your group's own needs. Want to hold a fundraising breakfast instead? How about a pep-rally? How about getting all the groups in your area for a collaborative event? Your Souper Bowl of Caring collection can be whatever fits your group the best....
