Sunday wraps up 2013 "Souper Bowl"

Posted: Updated:

Sunday was the last day for the 2013 Souper Bowl.

Members of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church have been donating canned soup to benefit local food banks.

Traditionally the campaign starts on the first Sunday of the year and ends on Super Bowl Sunday.

This year the "bowl" pitted tomato soup against chicken noodle.

The soup is then given to Harrisburg's Messiah Ecumenical Food Pantry and the New Hope Ministries in Mechanicsburg.

Over 2600 cans of soup were donated. Chicken noodle won this year's Souper Bowl with 1424 cans, while tomato rounded out at 1205.
