The Flint Hills Breadbasket celebrated the Manhattan Souper Bowl on Saturday. The event began in 1995 and encourages residents to give canned goods to help stock the pantry’s shelves with warm soup for cold months. St Thomas More Knights of Columbus member, Kelly Adams, was helped collect donations at Dillons Saturday morning.
Some of the Manhattan High Boys Basketball team was at Dillons helping out. Landon Knopp explains.
Their cart was filling up so quickly, they were moving donations to pallets. Miles Braxmeyer says he’s impressed with the community’s generosity.
Jason Kim explains why it’s important for the team to have opportunities to volunteer.
Other members of the Manhattan Boys Basketball Team were volunteering at Hy-Vee. Cole Coonrod explains what they were up to.
He and Jack Wilson were passing out slips for Souper Bowl ‘23. Standing next to overflowing carts of donations, Wilson says they’re pleased with the response.
As customers handed donations to Coonrod and Wilson, they shouted out praise as the team had beat Junction City 46-45 the night before.
