Take a look at the delicious fun we had at Taste of the NFL 2023!


Established in 1992, Taste of the NFL is the annual purpose-driven culinary experience at the Super Bowl, created to raise awareness and funds to support hunger and food insecurity. GENYOUth is proud to be partnering with the NFL on this league sanctioned event that supports the 1 in 8 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!


End Student Hunger

All proceeds from Taste of NFL go to GENYOUth’s efforts to End Student Hunger, which provide schools nationwide with the resources needed to deliver and distribute meals to at-risk students. For over 30 years Taste of the NFL has helped tackle hunger among children – particularly the 1 in 8 who are food insecure.

Creating Healthier School Communities

Through innovative public-private partnerships GENYOUth helps school children thrive by living well-nourished and physically active lives.

Food insecurity, food-access challenges, and the crisis in physical inactivity keep children from achieving their potential to be their best selves. GENYOUth addresses these challenges by collaborating with students, schools, communities, business partners, and thought leaders to identify and implement solutions – while always keeping students at the center of the conversation.
