BEAUMONT — KFDM/Fox4 has partnered with the Southeast Texas Food Bank in the fight to end hunger in our community. We’re harnessing the energy of the Big Game to inspire local businesses, schools, and service groups to raise awareness, monetary, and food donations.
From February 11th to March 18th, our partners, BASF-TotalEnergies Petrochemicals, LLC, 5Point Credit Unions, Tower Medical Centers, and ComproTax will host food drives and collect donations to fight hunger right here at home.
KFDM/Fox4 News Anchor Kimberly Rusley kicks off the campaign on Sunday, February 11th at 10pm, focusing on the Souperbowl of Caring, and the desperate need to help food insecure children, families, and seniors.
For the next six weeks, Kimberly will highlight our commitment to close the gap on hunger in Southeast Texas, generate donations for the Southeast Texas Food Bank, and help secure access to affordable, healthy food.
The number of families struggling to put food on the table continues to grow. In fact, one in five children in Southeast Texas is food insecure. That’s why it’s time to tackle hunger and join the fight against hunger and poverty in our community.

Your donation will support the Southeast Texas Food Bank and their many programs.
- Backpack food programs for school children on weekends and holidays. Food backpacks include healthy, easy-to-prepare food for kid-friendly meals. Just $175 provides food for a child for an entire school year.
- The SETX Food Bank provides 2900 Senior food boxes each month to qualifying seniors. Boxes contain a balanced diet of senior-friendly dietary supplementation, for example, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, juice, shelf stable milk, pasta, canned proteins, cheese, etc.
- Volunteer Many programs rely on regular volunteers. Volunteers pack backpacks and senior boxes, set up distributions, and delivery.
- Donate. Did you know a $10 donation can provide up to 30 meals? By donating, you help to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to choose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least know there will be food on the table.
Help us create a stronger voice in the fight against hunger in Southeast Texas. Souperbowl of Caring is a project of KFDM/Fox4, sponsored by BASF-TotalEnergies Petrochemicals, LLC, 5Point Credit Unions, Tower Medical Centers, and ComproTax, benefiting the Southeast Texas Food Bank.
