Taste of the NFL, a non-profit organization dedicated to kicking hunger in America for more
than 20years, will bring its annual fundraiser to Indianapolis on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012—the eve of Super Bowl XLVI. The strolling food and wine event, appropriately dubbed “The Party with a Purpose,®” will take place at Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, the first time in history the event will be held at a food bank location.
Gleaners, one of the largest food banks in the U.S., was chosen as the site for this year’s event. For one evening, a portion of the food bank’s nearly 300,000 square-foot warehouse will be transformed to host the Taste of the NFL event—giving thousands of guests the opportunity to see firsthand the important role of a food bank within a community, while experiencing one of Super Bowl’s premier events.
“We’re proud to partner with the Taste of the NFL as the host of the event in Indianapolis,” said Cindy Hubert, President/CEO of Gleaners Food Bank. “It’s a unique opportunity to welcome guests to our facility and allow them to learn more about hunger in our community and beyond.”
