Taste of the NFL is the premier food and wine tasting extravaganza held annually on the eve of the Super Bowl in the host city. It features a top chef from each of the 31 NFL cities paired with an alumnus or current player from each team. Attendees are able to sample specialty foods, meet the chefs, take photos with and get autographs from current and former NFL greats. Since its inception in 1992, the event has raised more than $8 million to help tackle hunger. Proceeds from the Taste of the NFL will benefit affiliates of Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest) – The Nation’s Food Bank Network and other national hunger-relief organizations.
