A Taste of the NFL
The NFL is teaming up with food banks all across the country; and they're hoping to score against hunger.
The day before the super bowl the NFL is hosting an event called “A Taste of the NFL.” It will feature a chef from each NFL city along with a current or former player from that city's team. They will have a table where guests can taste a dish designed to complement a wine. Up until that event similar tastings are happening all across the country. I recently spoke with former San Francisco 49er Eric Wright at the event in the bay area.
“If it's not in your heart and you're just out here and you really don't want to be here then i don't invite you, you have to want to give.”
Wright says he is involved with the food bank because it is a simple cause that helps so many people. And all it takes to give back is a love for food and wine. Hopefully the way to a football fans wallet is through his stomach.
