Taste Of The NFL Presented By Frito-Lay, Quaker, and the PepsiCo Foundation @Chateau Luxe, Phoenix, AZ – Saturday, February 11, 2023

Taste of the NFL event presented by Frito-Lay, Quaker, and the PepsiCo Foundation, was held at the Chateau Luxe, Phoenix, AZ. The event welcomed the attendees to a Culinary heaven like no other to benefit GENYOUth’s End Student Hunger Fund.

Guests were delighted in tasting national and regional food specialties, sipping signature beverages, mingling with NFL greats, getting photo-ops with Miss America and other surprise celebrity guests all while enjoying culinary demonstrations by star chefs Andrew Zimmern, Carla Hall, Tim Love, Mark Bucher and Lasheeda Perry, as well as tastings from 25 Arizona food masters. There was a silent auction featuring autographed merchandise and delicious culinary experiences along with a live auction where someone  bid and won last minute Super Bowl tickets. 

For over 25 years, #TasteoftheNFL has been working to #kickhunger with more than $25 million raised so far. Millions of people in America are struggling with hunger, with 1 out of 6 people, many of whom are children and seniors, still lacking food for the necessities of life.

The Taste of the NFL Mission addresses the needs of the hungry and homeless by raising awareness and money through special events and programs.

TNFL Founder and culinary entrepreneur, Wayne Kostroski, has led this charge since 1992.

We would like to thank Britney Peralta,and Eric Slutsky of GENYOUth NOW and The Taste Of The NFL for the invitation to this event. We look forward to covering this amazing event in Las Vegas, Nevada next year for SB58.
