Adrian Peterson + Bonita Jackson = 384 cans of Chunky Soup
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and his mother, Bonita Jackson, took part in an event with Campbell's Chunky Soup on Tuesday to help generate awareness about hunger in our community. Peterson and Jackson positioned themselves on one end of a giant spoon, while cases of Chunky Soup were placed on the other end. It took 384 cans in all to get it to balance out - all of which was donated to Second Harvest Heartland.
After the victory against the Packers on Sunday, Peterson was already a hero to sports fans in Minnesota. But now he and his mother have made an impact on many more people than just Vikings fans. Their charitable effort is very much appreciated - and will help feed our hungry neighbors this holiday season!
