Change the Game: Tackle Hunger in Your Community


Are you getting ready for the next big event on the calendar? Super Bowl LI is Sunday, February 5th in Houston, and Atlanta will be cheering on our home team! This year, you can make your Super Bowl celebration even more meaningful by tackling hunger in our home town while supporting the Falcons. We hope that your congregation will consider supporting Action Ministries Metro Atlanta’s Souper Bowl Campaign and help us to tackle hunger in 2017.

Here are three ways you can Change the Game with Action Ministries:

Fill A Soup Pot
Inspire your congregation, small groups, or family and friends to fill a soup pot with $500 in cash donations over the next two weeks or at your Super Bowl party to provide a homeless person in our community kitchen with access to a warm, free meal every day for a year. Donate here (choose "Metro" and list Souper Bowl 2017 as specific program) or mail a check to: Action Ministries Metro Atlanta
458 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Atlanta GA 30308 and share your donation at our page!

Collect From Your Congregation
Motivate your congregation to take up a Souper Sunday collection on the Sunday prior to the Super Bowl (1/29/17) to feed the hungry in our community. Collect $1000 to provide 2,000 meals for hungry families! Click here to download a bulletin insert for your Souper Sunday collection.

Challenge Your Community
Encourage your congregation to donate to Action Ministries Metro Atlanta (choose "Metro" and list Souper Bowl 2017 as specific program). A donation of $50 helps us feed a mother and child for three months! Challenge your friends to do the same by sharing your donation at our page!

According to U.S. census data, Georgia has the third highest overall poverty rate in the nation, and we rank sixth in the nation for food insecurity. Our mission at Action Ministries is to mobilize communities to address the challenges of poverty by focusing on hunger relief, housing and education. Across North Georgia, Action Ministries alleviates hunger in children via Smart Lunch, Smart Kid, and in families through a network of food pantries, community kitchens, and Feed the Hungry food boxes.

Even if the biggest highlights of your Super Bowl Sunday are not in the game but the food, TV commercials and the halftime show, please motivate your community organization or congregation to take up a Souper Sunday collection on the Sunday prior to Super Bowl (1/29/17) to support the Atlanta Women’s Community Kitchen and Trinity Table Kitchen.

Life is full of reasons to celebrate. This year, change the game by tackling hunger in your community, and make this Super Bowl one to remember!
