About Mission 57
In recognition of Super Bowl LVII, GENYOUth with support from corporate sponsors is providing grants for 57 Grab and Go meal cart equipment packages to 57 high-need schools in Arizona to increase access to nutritious school meals during breakfast and throughout the school day. The program’s long-term positive impact will include serving over 8.5 million school meals to over 31,000 students per year!
Fulfilling A Critical Need In Arizona
GENYOUth, in partnership with the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee, Arizona Milk Producers, Dairy Council® of Arizona, and generous corporate sponsors including Fry’s Food Stores, is kicking off Mission 57: End Student Hunger, a community-based initiative that will equip school nutrition programs with equipment and resources to tackle hunger among youth in Arizona as excitement builds for the BIG Game.
- School meals are a lifeline, and for many students they are the only healthy meal that they receive on some days.
- 84% of Arizona students qualify for free/reduced price school meals based on household income.
- In Arizona, only 55% of students participate in school breakfast for every 100 that participate in school lunch.
- Arizona ranks in the bottom half – 29th out of 51 states – in school breakfast participation.
GENYOUth’s Mission 57 game plan will lead up to and culminate with Taste of the NFL, the Super Bowl’s premier purpose-driven culinary event, on Saturday, February 11, 2023 in Phoenix.
We Need Your Help.
Help take Mission 57: End Student Hunger and Taste of the NFL into the end zone to fight food insecurity among children in Arizona & beyond!
