On Saturday, February 6, 2016 on the eve of Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco, celebrities and top chefs joined together with current, past and Hall of Fame NFL players to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of Taste of the NFL’s Party with a Purpose.

To date, the organization has raised over 24 million dollars, which have provided over 192 million meals.
