Delta Opportunity School collected 5,763 pounds of food in the fourth annual Souper Bowl of Caring. Delta United Methodist Church was the champion church, and Bill Heddles Recreation triumphed over last year's business champion, Image 1440, in a close competition — 281 pounds vs. 200 pounds donated.
The donations were shared with Delta Food Bank. The remaining food will be used to fill backpacks for 240 children each week in Cedaredge and Delta for the rest of the school year.
Donations of food or money can be made to Food for Thought anytime, and are always needed. Delta Opportunity School is located at 360 East 8th Street in Delta.
Photos of the winning teams will be published in next week's DCI.blog comments powered by Disqus
