    Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Not only did the Super Bowl kickoff on Sunday, but so did the Super Goal.

    The Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester paired up with Foodlink to get in the Super Bowl spirit, by breaking into teams and seeing who could pack the most food.

    The packages then go to children in the Rochester area.

    Volunteers say the competition is fun, especially for a good cause.

    "To know that people in the community can give, and maybe not see the difference right away, but knowing they are making a difference makes a big deal," said Kevin Wexler, volunteer with the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester.

    "We know that in the end we're going home to a nice hot meal, so we're inspired to help others go home to a nice hot meal,” said Neal Morchower, board member with Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester.

    Volunteers say the real winner is the community.

    This was the third year of the event.
