The Super Bowl is just around the corner and the NFL is giving back before the big game on February 1, 2014 in Brooklyn, NY. For over 22 years, the NFL has been working to kick hunger by raising over $14 million. However, the need to do more is unyielding. The NFL has recruited the country's top chefs and the NFL's greatest to raise money in support of Feeding America-affiliated food banks throughout the United States in each of the NFL cities.The main event meshes the culinary and athletic worlds together with The Party with a Purpose®.
This week, we had some players and cheerleaders from the Atlanta Falcons come and volunteer in the Product Rescue Center. Players Dominique Franks, Bradie Ewing, Jordan Mabin, Corey Peters and Jonathan Massaquoi and cheerleaders Micki and Hope sorted, packed and weighed product in an afternoon with other volunteers from YP and the community. Not only did the group sort and pack 11,585 pounds (or 9,654 meals), we like to think they had fun too.
