Join the Office for Community & Civic Engagement and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for a SOUPer Bowl Challenge to fight hunger on campus and in our local community.

You can participate by donating nonperishable foods to the CARE Resource Center, UNCP’s on campus food pantry. Donations will be accepted at check in, the CCE tent in the tailgate zone and at the football game entrance gate.

You will receive one raffle ticket for every two items donated. You will be entered into a chance to win free UNC Pembroke gear!

Don’t have nonperishable foods? No problem! We accept monetary donations. $1 donated provides 9 meals to students, staff, faculty and our local community. For monetary donations, visit and choose the “Community and Civic Engagement–CARE Gifts” designation. We do not accept cash on site.

List of goods desired by the CARE Resource Center: Ramen, peanut butter, jelly, Chef Boyardee, SpaghetiiOs, canned vegetables, fruit cups, snack bars, soups, canned tuna/chicken, packs of crackers and cereal.
