First Memorial Presbyterian Church Launches “Souper Bowl 2024” Campaign to Fight Hunger


DOVER — In an annual tradition that combines the excitement of the Super Bowl with a heartfelt commitment to making a positive impact, First Memorial Presbyterian Church (FMPC) is once again participating in the “Souper Bowl of Caring” in 2024. This inspiring event seeks to rally the community in the fight against hunger by collecting nonperishable food items and monetary donations to stock the FMPC Food Pantry.

As part of their outreach efforts, FMPC is encouraging community members to make a simple yet impactful gesture during their next visit to ShopRite. They invite shoppers, if possible, to pick up an extra box of pasta and a jar of sauce to contribute to the cause. Every small donation adds up and makes a difference in the lives of those in need.

For those who prefer to make monetary donations, FMPC has made the process easy and convenient. Interested individuals can contact Megan Quinones at megan.berg8@gmail.com, and she will arrange for pick-up or drop-off of donations.

Here is a list of items that FMPC’s Food Pantry is always in need of:

  • Cereal
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Rice
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned Soup
  • Canned Tuna/Chicken
  • Spam
  • Beans
  • Boxed Macaroni & Cheese
  • Canned pasta meals (i.e. Chef Boyardi, Spaghetti O’s)
  • Powdered Milk

For those who prefer the convenience of monetary contributions, donations can be mailed to:
First Memorial Presbyterian Church
51 West Blackwell Street
Dover, NJ 07801

FMPC has also embraced modern payment options and is accepting donations via Zelle. The email address for Zelle donations is kandt10@gmail.com. Contributors will receive a confirmation message stating that they are sending money to First Memorial Presbyterian Church.

What sets FMPC’s “Souper Bowl 2024” campaign apart is the assurance that 100% of all donations received will be used by the FMPC Food Pantry. This ensures that every contribution, whether in the form of food items or monetary support, directly benefits those facing food insecurity within the community.

Join FMPC in the “Souper Bowl 2024” campaign and be a part of the collective effort to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. Together, we can tackle hunger and create a brighter future for our community.
