New! 2024 Souper Bowl Food Drive


The Duffy Parent Equity Diversity & Inclusion Committee presents the 2024 "Souper Bowl Food Drive” from February 5-9.  Bring in non-perishable food items, other basic necessities, and notes/drawings of cheer and kindness to “vote” for your Super Bowl team by placing items on the respective tables near the front entrance. Flyers went home with students this past week.

The Souper Bowl benefits House of Bread in Hartford. Duffy Dragons will have the opportunity to learn more about food insecurity and supporting those in our wider community, including ways to learn together as a family.


Most needed items: pasta, parboiled rice, individually wrapped snacks, canned beans & vegetables, condiments, travel toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels, NEW men's t-shirts XL and larger, NEW adult underwear in larger sizes.

Sign up to help load donations on Friday afternoon!
