Souper Bowl of Caring hosted its first "Tackle Hunger" luncheon at the Hilton Americas on Tuesday. The fundraising event kicked off the celebration of the group's 25th anniversary. During the luncheon, Souper Bowl of Caring presented the Tackle Hunger Humanitarian Award to Texans Chairman, Founder and CEO Bob McNair for his dedication and commitment to the fight against hunger.
The event reportedly raised $225,000 in the fight against hunger. Special guest was Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Souper Bowl of Caring spokesman, who will be working alongside the Houston Food Bank this year to raise awareness about hunger and help bring about hunger relief throughout the Houston community through volunteer activities, appearances and nutrition education.
