Gribbin ‘Souper Bowl’ helps local families


Glen Cove students at Gribbin Elementary School recently participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring for the ninth consecutive year.

The Souper Bowl is a nationwide food drive that calls on schools, churches and other organizations to collect nonperishable food items and donate them to a local charity of their choice. The event coincides with the NFL’s Super Bowl to bring awareness to the needs of food pantries across the country, which were depleted during the December holidays.

Gribbin School families donated 126 pounds of food during the two-week collection period. The collected food was donated to the food pantry at Saint Rocco’s Church in Glen Cove.
