This year, in recognition of Hunger Action Month, Catholic Charities is partnering with the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic Schools, Soldier Field and the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation in an effort to help eliminate hunger in our communities. The Soup-er Stadium Challenge asks you to be a part of the solution by donating at least one shelf stable food item, and join us in filling every seat in Soldier Field twice! This will provide more than 100,000 meals to Chicagoans in need. The kickoff event at Soldier Field's Midway Club will commence the month long initiative and all proceeds and donations will go to Catholic Charities' eight food pantries.
