Get ready for Super Bowl LIII with Taste of the NFL’s Party With a Purpose

Super Bowl LIII is still a few months away, but there’s already a way to get in on the action.

Tickets are on sale for the 28th annual Party With a Purpose, put on by Taste of the NFL, a nonprofit dedicated to hunger relief.

The party will be held on Super Bowl eve, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, at Cobb Galleria Centre and will feature tastings from chefs from the 32 NFL cities, with current, Hall of Fame and alumni players and other celebrities in attendance. The event also offers live music (previous entertainers include Little Big Town, Common and O.A.R.) and an auction featuring items including sports and celebrity memorabilia and vacation packages.

Andrew Zimmern of “Bizzare Foods” will serve as Chef Host, with former San Diego Chargers player Ben Leber serving as Player Host. 

Taste of the NFL’s season-long fundraiser, the Kick Hunger Challenge, culminates the same night with the announcement of all funds raised. This friendly “competition” encourages fans from all 32 NFL teams to raise money for food banks in their local communities.
