On the weekend of February 4 and 5, All Saints Parish Youth Ministry joined seven thousand other youth groups across our nation to fight hunger and poverty in our own back yards by participating in the The Souper Bowl of Caring. While our nation was gearing up for the Big Game in Houston, we not only asked for donations at all the Masses to help our local food pantries, but we also decided to participate in a 24 Hour Food Fast. As a youth group, we wanted to feel what it is like to be hungry as well as pray for those who are truly experiencing hunger and poverty. We are grateful for the generous donations that we received of $3,000 which will benefit Corning Community Food Pantry and the Painted Post Food Pantry.
