MIDDLETOWN, DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa -- A local business got into the competitive spirit Sunday by holding own "Souper Bowl." Instead of a football game, it's a cooking competition and it is all for a good cause.

The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey is starting an annual tradition of hosting a "Souper Bowl" to benefit The Caring Cupboard Food Pantry in Palmyra, Lebanon County. The Caring Cupboard serves over 100-needy families each week.

"Whenever we can bring people together to support this community, it's part of who we are, it's why we are as successful as we are," says Jason Reimer, President of The Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey.

The cooking competition consisted of three different categories; soup, chili and an appetizer. It cost $10.00 to enter the "Souper Bowl" and to judge the delicious foods, a canned good or cash donation was the fee.

All registration fees and donated goods are given to The Caring Cupboard.
