Preparations are underway for Taste of the NFL’s 22ndannual Party with a Purpose® to take place Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013 in New Orleans. However, several additional activities are also underway to kick off hunger relief efforts in the greater New Orleans community where 1 in 8 people don’t get enough to eat.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana serves approximately 263,000 people across 23 south Louisiana parishes, including 82,000 children and 40,000 seniors. The area, which is still recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Issac, needs our support more than ever.
Stay tuned for more details on the Taste of the NFL Dinner Series where you will have the opportunity to dine in some of the best New Orleans restaurants this fall while helping to raise desperately-needed funds that will go directly to fight hunger in New Orleans.
In addition, Taste of the NFL team members will join Second Harvest on Oct. 2 to host a special dinner for a group of students who participate in an afterschool program which provides healthy meals to children who may not have access to enough food once they leave school.
