New!  Souper Bowl Food Drive

The Annual Souper Bowl Food Drive

The Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee invites the Duffy community to participate in the return of the "The Souper Bowl!” Bring in non-perishable food items and other basic necessities to “vote” for your Super Bowl team by placing items in your team’s bin near the front entrance.

This effort will benefit House of Bread, which has links to Duffy alum, and teach our children about supporting those in our wider community while having a great time! The Souper Bowl will take place from February 6-10. Most needed items include 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 volunteer!


Don’t forget to share your family recipes and stories for Duffy’s cookbook!


The 2023 Souper Bowl Food Drive will go on February 6-February 10. During this week, students can leave food donations in the school entry to "vote" for the team they think will win the Superbowl. More info will come about what items are needed most, where the donations go at the end of the week, and, of course, which teams will be competing! If you'd like to help out with this event, please go to the sign-up sheet on Konstella.
