The Taste of the NFL supports food banks in NFL cities across the nation, benefitting the 37 million Americans who depend on these services. The Founder’s Breakfast will feature many of the former players and celebrity chefs who were instrumental in establishing the Taste of the NFL in 1992.

The Taste of the NFL Founders Breakfast will feature a mixture of NFL greats and celebrity chefs from around the country serving as table hosts. Former NFL players Bobby Mitchell (Washington Redskins), Tommy Nobis (Atlanta Falcons), Jan Stenerud (Kansas City Chiefs), Bob Lurtsema (Minnesota Vikings), Jerry Sisemore (Philadelphia Eagles) and Dick Anderson (Miami Dolphins) will be in attendance. Celebrity chefs include: Susan Goss, Nancy Silverton, Robert Del Grande, Jack McDavid, Allen Susser and Mark Haugen.
