The SOUPer Bowl Story
The SOUPer Bowl event was created by a group of Nease High School parents and students in 2016 to bring the community together, raise awareness of student hunger in St. Johns County, and raise funds to provide weekend nutrition for hungry students. This epic soup-tasting event brings together the community and over 20 local chefs. In addition to enjoying a large selection of gourmet soups, guests select a handmade pottery bowl crafted by a St. Johns County student. The event is a collaborative effort of volunteer parents, Nease High School Academy students, and many local restaurants and businesses.
The 2018 SOUPer Bowl recipient charity is First Coast Blessings in a Backpack. Blessings is currently providing weekend nutrition to over 800 students in 14 St Johns County Schools. It costs $100 per student for weekend nutrition throughout the school year. All monies raised at the SOUPer Bowl stay local and are used to feed St Johns County students. Event tickets are only $25, please consider joining us as we continue the fight to end student hunger in St Johns County!

Each week a group of Nease High School students purchases food, packs individual bags, and delivers them to over 200 students at Webster Elementary School. This student group has continued this weekly service for over 8 years. It is currently the only Blessings in a Backpack packing group that is entirely run by students for students. #studentstacklehunger
