Established in 1992, Taste of the NFL is the Super Bowl’s premier annual purpose-driven culinary experience, created to raise awareness and funds to tackle hunger. Starting in 2020, GENYOUth has been the proud charitable partner of Taste of the NFL, dedicated to taking this remarkable event to the next level to support the 1 in 6 children in the U.S. who are food insecure. We all need to do our part to provide vital resources to the most vulnerable kids in our communities and that’s what the Taste of the NFL is all about – a reminder that we cannot take one meal for granted.
Taste of the NFL 2022 presented by Frito-Lay and The PepsiCo Foundation, held at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles on February 12th in conjunction with Super Bowl LVI, was a one-of-a-kind, high energy Culinary Joyride featuring world renowned celebrity chefs including Andrew Zimmern, Carla Hall, Tim Love, Lasheeda Perry and Mark Bucher, along with star NFL players and entertainment luminaries. Over 2,100 guests enjoyed an incredible afternoon filled with chef recipe demonstrations and competitions, delicious delectables, creative cocktails, sports star meet and greets, museum tours, a Female Quotient Equality Lounge @ Taste of the NFL, unique auction packages, and other surprise and delight moments.
On Super Bowl Sunday, February 13, Taste of the NFL @Home became the fourth most watched broadcast program on The NFL Network during the Super Bowl week, featuring chef recipe demonstrations and a “Chalk Talk” hosted by legendary sportscaster James “JB” Brown with special guests including NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace, and Olympians Allyson Felix and Lindsey Vonn.
Planning is already underway for Taste of the NFL in 2023 in Phoenix. Contact Maureen Bausch, GENYOUth Chief Development Officer, at Maureen.bausch@GENYOUthNow.org for details.
