In addition to the excitement of the unique location for this year’s event, Taste of the NFL leaders are proud to announce that Tony Dungy will serve as the effort’s National Honorary Chair. Dungy is beloved throughout the region - most notably as the head coach of the 2006-07 Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts. Since his retirement as coach in 2009, Dungy has served as an analyst on NBC’s Sunday Night Football pregame show, as well as authored several best-selling books in recent years.
“I’ve admired the efforts of Taste of the NFL for many years and their relentless effort to kick hunger across our country,” says Dungy. “The significance of this year is monumental – more people than ever are relying on hunger relief organizations. Plus, to host this premier event within the walls of a food bank is sure to make a lasting impression on its guests.” “Tony is known nationally for his strengths and ethics off the field, just as much as for them on the field,” says Wayne Kostroski, founder of Taste of the NFL. “We admire his conviction for community giving and are proud to have him leading our team this year in the fight to end hunger.”
