A ‘souper’ collection in Malverne


In an effort to help stock the food pantry at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Malverne, as well as bringing the community together, the church held its annual Souper Scavenger Hunt last Saturday.

Residents met at the church, signed up to take part and formed teams before taking to the streets for this year’s village-wide hunt. Children knocked on doors and collected canned goods throughout the afternoon, competing to score extra points for gathering tuna, peanut butter and canned fruits, among other items.

Last year, children collected just over 9,000 lbs. of non-perishable food items.
