Our Story

The Hunger Issue

As you read this, millions of people in America are struggling with hunger. In fact, 1 out of every 6 people in our country face this serious issue – many of them are children. For over 22 years, Taste of the NFL has been working to kick hunger. While we're proud to report that we've raised more than $14 million during that time, we're saddened to report that the need to do more is greater than ever. We hope you'll support our efforts by making a contribution.

Taste of the NFL Mission

To address the needs of the hungry and homeless by raising awareness and money through special events.

What is Taste of the NFL?

Since 1992, the Taste of the NFL (a 501c3 organization) has rallied the country's top chefs and the NFL's greatest to raise money in support of food banks throughout the United States. The efforts culminate at the Super Bowl with The Party with a Purpose®. Held on the eve of Super Bowl, this event is a unique way to experience exceptional cuisine, meet NFL players and coaches, and support our fight against hunger. Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers who help make Taste of the NFL the single most successful charitable event at the Super Bowl, Taste of the NFL continues to help feed the 37 million Americans who have turned to their local food banks for assistance. Millions of needs, thousands of families and dozens of new hunger projects have been affected by this major volunteer effort. Our goal: end hunger. Won't you help?

Recipients

Each year, net proceeds from the Taste of the NFL's Super Bowl event are donated to designated Feeding America-affiliated food banks in each of the NFL cities, as well as other select hunger relief organizations, with an emphasis on the Super Bowl host city's local needs.
