More Than 6,000 Cans Collected in "Souper Bowl"

North Ridge Primary School holds fourth-annual soup can drive for Long Island Cares.

North Ridge Primary School in Commack collected 6,395 soup cans for the Long Island Cares food bank in its fourth-annual "Souper Bowl."

Kicking hunger to the curb, Lorraine Espositio, a physical education teacher at North Ridge, arranged the cans in the shape of a giant sneaker, including laces.

"The children are very motivated to help others and feed the hungry. The success of the Long Island Cares program is due to the support they receive from generous community members like our North Ridge families," she said in a statement.

Carolann Lally, an art teacher at the school, created a special project with the students in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s 1962 famed work, 32 Campbell’s Soup Cans. The students created “Andy Warhol Soup Can People,” as seen in the photo.

Lara Sherman’s class was named the “Souper Bowl” champions (pictured above), after collecting 1,188 cans, more than any other class.
