PONTE VEDRA, Fla. – The Superbowl may be on Sunday but the SOUPer bowl event is set for Thursday evening in St. Johns County.

Hunger is a problem for many students throughout Florida, but a soup-tasting event from 6 until 8 p.m. at Nease High School hopes to address the problem for many students.

The SOUPer Bowl event will raise funds for Blessings in a Backpack, a nonprofit organization that feeds more than 4,000 children in schools across Duval and St. Johns counties every weekend.
