“Souper” Bowl Sunday – Canned Soup Collection for New Melle Food Pantry

Friedens Peace United Church of Christ in New Melle is “COVID” rethinking how to continue their annual tradition of “Souper” Bowl Sunday.  It’s anticipated  that the New Melle food pantry needs will be greater than ever, so they’re trying something different. 

Volunteers will be hosting a “drive-thru” drop-off service in the Friedens Peace parking lot on Super Bowl Sunday, February 7th, 2021, from noon until 1:00 p.m.  Financial donations to this cause are also welcome by sending a check to Friedens Church marked “Souper” Bowl donation.  Or go online to the church’s website,, and click the “Souper” Bowl donation button.

The goal is to exceed the 400 cans of soup that were collected in 2020.  To mail a donation,or for more information: Friedens Peace United Church of Christ, 3560 Mill Street, PO Box 28, New Melle MO  63365; Phone: 636-828-5980, or Email:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
