Souper Bowl event

Rival high schools in Idaho compete to help a local food pantry. Idaho Falls rivals Skyline High School and Idaho Falls High School went head to head, competing to see which school could raise more money and canned goods for the nonprofit Community Food Basket of Idaho Falls. Called “The Souper Bowl,” the competition has been going on every year for nearly two decades.

For the month of January and part of February, students from both schools collected cash and canned goods to donate to support families and individuals facing food insecurity in the greater Idaho Falls area.

This year, Skyline High collected $22-thousand and 60-thousand cans with a total food weight of over 23-thousand pounds and Idaho Falls High collected $11-thousand and 53-thousand cans with a weight of 25-thousand pounds While Skyline High appeared to collect more money and cans, Idaho Falls High’s weight total was higher, so officials are calling it a draw. But one thing is clear: the real winner is the community of Idaho Falls.
