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 to take this remarkable event to the next level to support the 1 in 4 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!
