The Super Bowl is coming to South Florida in 2020 and so is a big party that cannot be missed – Party with a Purpose® by Taste of the NFL (TNFL). The annual event traditionally takes place on the eve of the Super Bowl and for its 29th year it will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida.
This year’s star-studded fundraising event brings together exceptional cuisine, prominent chefs from around the country, NFL players, coaches, legends and more, all to support the fight against hunger. The team of guest hosts for 2020 includes the legendary Coach Don Shula serving as the National Honorary Chair; Chef Andrew Zimmern – National Culinary Host; Chef Adam Richman – Florida Culinary Host; and Ben Leber as the National Player Host.
The fundraising campaign spearheaded by TNFL, aptly named Kick Hunger Challenge (KHC), benefits hunger relief. This friendly “competition” pits fans of all 32 NFL teams against each other to raise money for food banks in NFL communities nationwide. KHC continues throughout the 2019/2020 football season including Super Bowl Weekend. Fans will have the opportunity to support the NFL team of their choice and directly impact the donation of thousands of meals to food banks in their team’s community. Since its inception, TNFL – one of the few organizations sanctioned by the NFL – has raised and donated over $26 million for food banks and hunger-related nonprofit organizations in all 32 NFL cities, resulting in more than 220 million meals distributed nationwide.
Leading the charge locally and representing South Florida are some true stars from the food and sports industries including James Beard Award winner Chef Allen Susser; The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale’s Executive Chef Paula DaSilva; former Dolphins linebacker John Offerdahl; and former Dolphins safety Dick Anderson – NFL Player Rep for Shula’s American Steakhouse and Dolphins’ Perfect Season. South Florida’s Kick Hunger Challenge directly benefits Feeding South Florida. To learn about local KHC initiatives for the Dolphins, please visit: kickhungerchallenge.com.
