Taste of the NFL
Taste of the NFL is a purpose-driven culinary event and a staple of Super Bowl weekend for over 32 years. The event features exceptional cuisine, prominent chefs, NFL players and legends and entertainment all supporting the need to tackle food insecurity among youth. As the non-profit beneficiary of Taste of the NFL, this important event supports GENYOUth’s commitment to End Student Hunger and its mission to create healthier school communities.
Plans are underway for Taste of the NFL 2023, which will be held on Saturday, February 11th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Chateau Lux in Phoenix, Arizona during Super Bowl LVII Weekend. All-star chefs Andrew Zimmern, Carla Hall, Tim Love, Lasheeda Perry, and Mark Bucher will join Arizona’s top culinary talent, NFL players and legends, and surprise special guests for a delicious culinary celebration with a purpose. All funds raised will benefit GENYOUth’s End Student Hunger fund and will be distributed to schools in Arizona and the 32 NFL markets to nourish children nationwide by increasing school meal participation and delivery. Ticket sales will be announced soon so save the date for Taste of the NFL 2023!!!
The collective impact of the Taste of the NFL 2022 presented by Frito-Lay and the PepsiCo Foundation held this past February at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles totaled $1.5 million and will support the delivery of over 93 million school meals to food insecure students in Los Angeles and across the country.
