Taste of the NFL – A Super Bowl Celebration for Foodies


Celebrity chefs Carla Hall, Andrew Zimmern, Tim Love, Ming Tsai, Mark Bucher, and Lasheeda Perry, along with other top chefs from around Los Angeles come together to cook up some innovative bite-sized food. Celebrity guests, including singer-songwriter, Rita Ora, and many NFL icons, including Miles Sanders and Charles Woodson were also seen to present this year’s Super Bowl’s premier culinary charity event.



World-renowned chefs and celebrity guests cook up some incredible Super Bowl food while tackling food insecurity at the Taste of the NFL which was presented by Frito-Lay and The PepsiCo Foundation. This culinary event featured chef-cooking competitions, mouthwatering food, amazing cocktails, and some very thought-provoking panel discussions featuring Alexis Glick CEO, GENYOUth, Shelley Zalis CEO, The Female Quotient, Nayomie Mendoza, Chef and Owner of Cuernavaca’s Grill & PepsiCo IMPACTO grantee, among many others.


The NFL’s largest charity event was held at the spacious Petersen Automotive Museum, just around the corner from LACMA. Along with the event, the guests could view the exhibitions laid out by the Museum as well.

All the event’s proceeds benefit GENYOUth’s End Student Hunger Fund, dedicated to providing equipment and resources to help deliver and distribute school meals to millions of students nationwide.
